We are in ECC 5.0 and are currenlty using BAPI_SALESORDER_SIMULATE to get the Net price of a material to external systems. (they just want the final price)
The requirement is that other systems query SAP through an RFC to get prices for materials.
The RFC uses BAPI_SALESORDER_SIMULATE to get the prices out.
When external systems request prices with 5 materials, then it takes around 1-2 mins to run this BAPI and we are good. But now the new requirement is that we need to accomodate 200+ materials and it is exponentially increasing the performance and hence not an optimal solution.
Is there anything in ECC that will just give just the prices for an input of material, customer and price date.
Your help is appreciated !
Have a nice day
