In today’s SAP Training class, we have discussed SAP Credit Management, its different configuration options and here are some exercises to solve to understand those concepts better.
Question 3. Assign a Credit limit of 1,00,000 to the customer created in Q.1 above.
Question 4. Create a new SAP Sales Document Type ( as a copy of standard order type OR if possible ) and give the document type -Z019
Question 5. Set the Credit Management to the document type you created in Q.4 to Simple Credit Check. What are the different options available in Simple Credit Check ?
Question 6. Create a Sales Order for the Document type ( Created in Q.4 ) and the Customer ( Created in Q.1 ) for a material ( say M-01 ) for a value of 30,000. Specify the SAP Order Number
Question 7. What is the Credit Exposure for the Customer ?
Question 8. What percentage of the credit limit is used ?
Question 9. Create another order for the same customer and Order type – Only this time, create the order with a value of around 90,000 ( It does not need to be exactly 80,000 ). What is the System Response ? Did the credit limit warning come up ?
Question 10. What is the credit exposure for the Customer now ?
Question 11. What percentage of the credit limit is used now ?
Question 12. Explain why the credit limit is not exceeded for Q.9 above even though the order value in Q.6 and Q.9 together exceeded the Credit Limit set by you in Q.3 ?
Question 13. This time create another order for the same customer and Order type – Only this time, create the order with a value of around 1,20,000 ( It does not need to be exactly 1,20,000 ). What is the System Response ? Did the credit limit warning come up ?
Question 14. Explain in your own words difference between the system response for Q.9 vs Q.13 ?
Question 15. Delivery and Bill the Order you have created in Q.6. Make sure the Accounts are being posted to.
Question 16. Check the total receivables for the Customer. What is the value ?
Question 17. After performing Q.15 above, what is the new effective Credit limit for the Customer ?
Hint : If you get confused in the middle, always start with a new customer, set a credit limit to a fixed value say 100,000 and start the transactions from scratch. This eases the pain of understanding SAP Credit Management configuration a bit. 🙂
Question 18. Repeat Q.1 through Q.4 specified in and specify the answers.
Question 19. Create a new SAP Credit Group Zx and assign it to the new SAP Sales Document Type configuration you have created in Q.18
Question 20. This time set the Credit Management settings to Automatic
Question 21. Create a new Risk Category ( How to create a new Risk Category in SAP ? ) say Zxx and assign it to the Credit Control area you have chosen in Q.18 above.
Question 22. What are the 3 parameters used to determine Automatic Credit Control in SAP ?
Question 23. Specify the Automatic Credit Management settings to “Static” and specify the system reaction to Warning in case the limit exceeds. What configuration have you done to effect this ?
Question 24. Set the scenario in Q.23 to block the order in case of credit overage
Question 25. Create the following Sales Orders with the Customer and Order type you have crated in Q.18
-> Order 1 – 30,000 Value
-> Order 2 – 80,000 Value
What is the system reaction to the second order ? How is this different from SAP credit Management Reaction in Q.9 above ?
Question 26. Release the order from credit block for Order # 2 in Q.25 above. ( How to release an SAP Sales Order from Credit Block )
Addendum 2 :
The following exercise in on SAP Automatic Credit Management with Dynamic Credit Horizon. It’s a little tricky especially with testing it and understanding the Dynamic Credit Horizon.
Hint : Please try not to do all the questions in this post the same day – especially Addendum 2. We are not responsible if you pull your hair out 🙂
Question 27. Create another Customer, a new Risk Category . Specify the same.
Question 28. For the data in Q.27, set the Credit limit to100,000, apply the newly created Risk Category to the Customer.
Question 29. In Automatic Credit Management, specify the configuration for the corresponding Credit Control Area, Risk Category and Credit Group as follows
-Dynamic Credit Management with “Warning” as the system response
-the order should be blocked for credit in case the credit limit exceeds.
-The SAP Dynamic Credit horizon should be 2 months.
Specify the configuration you have done for the same.
** Watch out – Here comes the tricky part **
Question 30. Create a new Sale order for a value of 50,000, set the delivery date 4 months out into the future. Specify the SAP Sales Order and the delivery date
Question 31. Create another Sales Order for a value of 50,000, set the delivery date 5 months out into the future. Specify the SAP Sales Order and the delivery date.
Question 32. Create another sales Order for a value of 30,000 – do NOT change the SAP system proposed delivery date. Specify the SAP Sales Order
Question 33. Specify the Credit Exposure for this customer and explain in your own words why it is so ?
