Several prices for same Material and Vendor

0 Kudos

Hi Experts,

We have a situation, where we need to maintan several purchase prices for the same material at the same vendor, but I do not think Info Records will support this. We are already using Split Valuation through Valuation Types for other purpose, but might be an option to utilize this or maybe some kind of attribute to the material.

Case is, that we have signed agreement with a vendor for a number of materials, which we can purchase at an agreed price under a standard lead time. However, we are also able to purchase the concerned materials on a "rush priority", but this will also come with a cost, so the price will be different (higher). I am not sure how we can maintain this in SAP. It is okay, that the buyer has to select to price upon order creation, but we need to somehow maintain this price scheme to be populated to the buyer.

I hope you are able to help on how we can maintain such a two-price setup for materials with a certain vendor.

Brgds,

Michael

Info records only supports different prices  on different date intervals.

Valuation types have nothing to do with future prices for contracts

If you have  agreed prices then you usually setup agreements (contracts)

Info record has the general price (your rush order) if you buy without contract, and in any other case the price is taken from the contract.

Hi,

You can maintain  two-price for same material with help of only split valuation only with valuation types.

But in your case for rush priority  - you can create an Emergency PO with separate document PO document type  by entering manual price  for material master and further accounting entry on transactions posting depends on price control of material.

Hi,

   Find any criteria in PO, like document type, purchase group, etc, specific to the "rush priority" item purchase order. Now, create a condition table in M/03 with these criteria and assign to the access sequence assigned to the gross price. You have to assign the new condition table as first access in the access sequence. Maintain the condition record for the gross price in MEK1 and test the scenario again.

   Whenever the "rush on" criteria comes, system will search for the valid condition record and get the higher price.
