Can we develop Material Pricing Function by using MDF?

Hi Everyone,

The customer wants to know whether they can develop the whole Pricing Function in MDM by using Master Data Framwork (MDF). Material Pricing is a complex function in MM/SD and customer master uses a couple of the pricing fields to get the values from the Pricing function. This is NOT a matter to create a MDM object, rather, it is a custom system in MDM. The customer also wants to know whether SAP has a plan to develop the Pricing function in MDM(for customer master)in the next release.

    Hi Kin,

    MDF is meant to create additional master data object types not delivered by SAP. It is not meant to enhance the existing object types like product master or business partner, let alone to add functionality to one of them.

    I'm not familiar with Pricing but to me it doesn't seem like MDF will be the proper tool.

    I'd suggest that you just play a bit with MDF in order to get known to its capabilities; it's quite easy to use and you rapidly (minutes to hours, once you got known to MDF) can set up a new object type.

    Best regards,

    Daniel Buchmann

      Hi Daniel,

      Thanks for the response and we understand MDF is not the right tool to build Pricing in MDM but the customer wants to have the official answer from SAP:

      What is SAP's plan to develop Pricing function (Pricing Procedure, Pricing Conditions, Pricing Group and Condition Records)in MDM the next release (MDM 7.0)?

      Best Regards,
