Provisional Pricing/Price Fixation - Commodity Procurement (CPE)

142 Views

Dear Team,

Background: We have a customer on S/4 HANA 1809 dealing in metal commodities (copper) procurement which is used for FG (Finished goods) for which we are in the process of implementing Commodity Procurement & Sales Solution.

Queries:

1) Is there a way to enter provisional price manually in the PO/SO instead of auto-calculations via CPE? The pricing condition type (Calculation type = Q - Commodity Pricing) that we have configured does not allow manual pricing in the PO/SO.

Business rationale to the above is the provisional invoice rate is agreed offline with the suppliers/customers and requires no automation.

2) The final pricing is done via the price fixation (final prices fixed with the suppliers/customers for the respective QP month) process that we are updating in the PO & SO. The price fixation that is done with our customers/suppliers is per QP month.

What is the best practice in terms of creating the PO/SO considering the price fixation process? One PO per QP month and the PO lines 1:1 with GRN or 1:n with GRN? The issue that we are having is if we have multiple PO lines - user will have to manually calculate/split the price fixation and apply in the respective PO lines to the respective qty as the price fixation is exercised on the PO line item level.

Please suggest.

Regards,

Kunal
