32 Master Data in SAP Credit Management Credit data is a component of SAP Credit Management and is stored in SAP Business Partner. It consists of the credit profile data and credit segment data. The credit profile is used for the central storage of customer data relevant for risk assessment (scoring, risk class, external rating, credit check rule). Credit segments can map various areas of a company (such as sales area, countries, company codes). They are used for area-specific administration of credit limits (and their utilization) and to store information on the payment behavior of the customer. The corresponding credit segment data is used for credit checking when the order is created or on delivery within a company area. By using relationships you have the possibility of creating customer hierarchy SAP AG. All rights reserved. 36

36 Credit Rules Engine Create scoring formula and credit limit formula by using the formula editor. Parameters (for example business partner data) and functions are used as input parameter. One scoring formula and several credit limit formulas (for each credit segment) are assigned to the rule for scoring and credit limit calculation, which is assigned to each customer in the credit profile. The risk class is determined directly from the score. In customizing, specific score ranges which do not overlap are assigned to each risk class. For the check rule, the system determines the steps which are taken to check the creditworthiness of a customer when a sales order is created. This may include the static check of the credit limit or the check of the highest dunning level. Customer-specific process chains in SAP Credit Management can be defined through events which trigger follow-up actions 2011 SAP AG. All rights reserved. 41
