no Automatic credit recheck after ATP confirmation of scheduled line

Custmer credit limit = 100 ; current credit exposure = 90 ; new order value = 20

Order schedule line confirmed quantity = 0; at the time of order save, the order is credit approved (new order credit value = 0 ; credit limt > current exposure) - the sytem behavior is O K ;

Later, the PO is generated, the (batch job) ATP process confirms (reserves) the product for the new order ; the credit commitment/exposure is correctly updated to 90+20 = 110. But the process of ATP / credit commitment update DOES NOT trigger a recheck of the new order ( the new order should now go into a credit blocked status; VOFM routine will continue to confirm quantity for orders on credit block). We do not want to check orders at the time of delilvery. This behavior of not trigerring a recheck at the time of ATP confirmation / credit commitment will let "rush" orders to be on Approved status and possbily delivered. How have you handled this scenario, except (a) periodic recheck of all approved orders either manually or thru the VKM4 selection (batch job) . Pls. rememebr the business process design preference is NOT to credit check at the time of delivery.

hello, friend.

the following suggestions may or may not work for you, subject to the specific logic in your VOFM. however...

if the requirement is to prevent credit management on rush orders, you could just de-activate credit check for the sales document type (SO in standard SAP).

to prevent credit check at delivery level, make sure that there are no OVA8 settings (assuming you use automatic credit controls) for delivery (credit group 02) and un-assign credit controls for delivery types. however, this could create a loophole in your credit management, so i would suggest you configure that it be mandatory to create deliveries with reference to sales orders (in addition to other settings).
