We come across requirements where the default order settings are to be configured by a group of items for a customer / vendor or group of the same. Companies in retail / distribution create such contracts based on minimum sales / purchases for every order based on the item group (such as a specific brand) to specific groups of customers / vendors. Furthermore lead times can be assigned to the same contracts. The default order settings are item based and do not support configuration for group of items / customer or vendor groups. It also takes a lot of time to configure lead time on trade agreements in case we need to work with specific lead times by vendor or customer. This can also create configuration errors as prices need to be considered when creating such lead times. A company which sells 1000s of SKUs finds this hard to manage.
Would be good to have some standard function to assist in completing such a configuration which is not dependent on the trade agreements as well as enhances the default order settings setup to incorporate groups
