Performance issue in Oracle Pricing for Online Orders and change in seeded code

During performance testing, we have identified Online Order Creation Business Process is running long and not meeting the SLA. Upon analysis, we found a query in the seeded package "QP_PREQ_GRP" having high execution time. We have modified the Index and observed performance improvement in next load tests.

I've added the tkprof files, query details, business process for your reference and request oracle support to validate and give blessings on these changes

Run time details from Peak Load performance testing
Target SLA: 43.41sec
Achieved response time: 59.07seconds

after modified the query in seeded package, the runtime was reduced to less than 40sec at business process level during peak load testing

we have modified the same package for another performance issues in a batch job and it is being tracked through SR #3-14107672101

Expect performance to be better in R12.

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1 Login to OTC system
2 Navigate to:  Sales Order
3 Provide Customer Number in ‘Cust #’ field, Order Type in ‘Order Type’ field, PO Amount in ‘PO Amount’ field in DFF and Customer PO in Customer PO’ field and save the record
5 Navigate to the lines, Enter the Ordered Item, Quantity and Navigate down. Enter the next line and quantity and arrow down again

7 If the following error message pops up:
“A hold prevents booking of this order.” then
