There are no disadvantage of Lead Time Scheduling.

If you maintain proper data then you will get the proper result for detailed scheduling.

Some company go for third party scheduling like APO etc becuase there are certain features which are not available in SAP.For eg in APO both materail and capacity can be planned simultaneously and which is not available in SAP.

In SAP even there is capacity overload system will generate Planned order this can be avoided in APO and in APO you have Optimazation facility which is not available in SAP.

In APO you can maintain relationship between customer order/Prod Order/Purchase order and can do the bidirectional planning from both supply and demand side.
