In "Weighting and Ranking", for the comparison of bids, suppose if we have to consider the interest gained during the credit period given by the supplier, could there be any solution?
As far as I remember, Weighting and Ranking as per standard functionality, is a fairely fixed process by comparing total value only (i.e. quantity x price). And there is no BADI to involve custom comparison logics. I'm afraid the only chance you have is to modify the standard codes to fulfill your requirement.
But for a commercial point of view,
1. Calculation of Interest gained during credit period
- the credit period offered by the supplier and
- the subsequent calculation of bank interest gained during credit period,
- then to arrive at effective price, by deducting the gained interest...
(If the supplier is asking Advance, we have to add the interest lost in the replenishment lead time)
seems to be very important. Believe that is why most of the people negotiate for higher credit period with suppliers...
2. Conversion to Local Currency
3. Consideration of Import Freight Cost (or Local Freight, if local supplier)
4. Calculation of Custom Clearing Charge
5. Calculation of Local Freight charge (after custom Clearing)
6. Calculation of Bank Charges for doing payment to suppliers
7. Calculation of Non-Deductible portion of Duty/Taxes
I am an MM consultant, new to SRM... The above were the calculations which we used to practice for arriving at FINAL EFFECTIVE PRICE (in Excel out side SAP), when I was in domain, while preparing Quote comparison Statement.
Particularly, when
(1) some suppliers are international, some are local,
(2) The Credit period offered by various suppliers are different.
Rest of the points seems affordable except for the first point... request comments on first point...
