Price and Conditions

Hi All ....

Need your help to understand Pricing and conditions system in SAP and how to use in practical business enviorement ....

From SAP help ... what I could understand ,

1) There is a calculation schema (pricing procedure ) which can be assigned to Purchase Organization ( or group of pur Org ) and/or to vendor (group of vendor )

2) This calculation schema can have multiple condition types

3) Condition types have Condition tables

4) Access sequence is assigned to each condition tables within the Condition Type

5) There are condition records where actual price / discount etc data is maintained.

I may be wrong somewhere, sorry for that ......but my actual problem is I couldn't map it out with the actual business cases.

Therefore i would appreciate if you people can help me out with a actual business example regarding the usage of these conditions.

Thx in advance

    Thx for your replies .... but still I have some confusions :-((

    Suppose I have a price structure like

    Basic price = 100

    Discount = 10%

    Tax = 10 %

    Freight = 20....

    So for this structure Do I need to create my own schema and condition types or should I use the one RM0000 which is already available ... and in case I have to create my own ( say if everything can't be mapped through std procedures ) and then how should I define my conditions for above example.

    Also what is the use of Supplement procedure which can be attached in condition types ....

    I am sorry for asking so many things but this is one area which is giving me trouble... need yr help.

      backbone of pricing procedure is condition type...........spend some time to get under the skin of condition type and claulation schema .if u have the in depth knowledge of these two steps ur through with this daunting topic pricing procedure

      apart from above u must know the significance of

      what is condition table? and why we need it?

      what is condition record?and why we need this?

      what is subtotal ,man, requirement, to ,from in calculation schema?

      can u change skto condition type in po? if no then why?

      if u have the answer of above given question the u need not to worry about this topic

    Simply speaking the Pricing procedure in MM is basically working based on condition technique....It is nothing but Access sequence, accessing the conditions records of the condition types from the condition tables...

    Calculation schema is nothing but grouping of condition types which tells you which condition type should be kept as a basic one....and in what base and order the condition types should be calculated....and what are all the condition types should be added to the net calculation ...and what are all the condition types you want to put it in accdruals etc..Based on this calculation schema only the PO price is calculated...

    Condition records are nothing but where the condition types are stored...

    Condition Tables are nothing but where the condition records are stored...

    Access sequence is a search strategy which tells order in which the condition tables to searched for the condition records of the particular condition types.

    Hope I have given right idea...

    look u would like to create a PO to issue to a certain vendor and this activity happens genrally every day now

    every time u r going to create a po u need to mention the discount he offers , frieght , taxes and this becomes a very hectic job if u need to do this for 100 vendors every day so the solution is we will create the master data for the conditions and that is named as purchase info record (it is also a condition table)

    so the moment u mention material ,plant , vendor system pulls the conditions from the condition table using the pricing procedurescema-acess sequence.

    if not clear the revert back
