Creating a Division for Separate Material group

Dear all,

We are using 2 material groups (Johnson & Johnson , Henkel) in SAP.

Our Orgn structure looks like

Sales Orgn: 0000

Dis.Chn - 00 , 01

Division - 02,03

Credit Cntrol area - 0000

Presently i maintain the credit limit for a customer say 11 - Hospital for a single sales area 0000,00,02 which is operated by these 2 groups

The issues are

o we cannot allocate the limit of AED100k in these 2 Groups and it results in loss of sale for any of them.

o we cannot block the customer for any particular groups.

The Idea is to create 2 separate Divisions and maintain the credit limit for the customers. If i accept that i have to change the entire structure in SAP which is a tedious work,

Is there any alternative to solve this issue apart from creating a division.

Your input is highly appreciable.

    Creating new divisions for different material groups might not be the right way forward.

    1. This would be a risk as the enterprise structure would grow more complicated exponentially.

    The creation of new division might touch pricing, output; assignment of sales document types to sales areas, extension of CMRs etc.

    2. How would credit management be controlled by creating new divisions?

    You would have to create a new CCA too.

    And, in FD32, the same CMR for new CCA and then the values of credit limit etc.

    You could create a "Psudeo-Payer" for the CMR when it buys particular material group (Henkel etc.). For this payer you can maintain the credit limit.

    In the sales order, the user would have to maintain the "Psudeo-Payer" manually.

    Could you please explain why your client is interested for this requirement?

    If in future, similar requirements come; going for new division would be RISKY....could you discuss the pros and cons with your client (about new division or its requirement)?

      Thanks for the explaining the solution, but let us say if my salesman is serving 10000 Customers for J&J and Henkel , then i need to create 10000 payer and maintain a credit limit

      I feel that this will be more difficult as the user has to select manually the payer at the time of creating the sales order.

      Is there any better solution than this.

      Kindly revert.

    Instead of creating division you can create a Material pricing group and assign it in material master. After that through a User exit define the apportionments of credit limit for each Material pricing groups with you ABAPer's help. Try this and reply if you had any issue
