Material Master — General Data: 

Material Master — General Data Base Unit of Measure The Base Unit of Measure is the unit of measure in which stocks are managed within your company. Division You may enter the Division which your product is in for sales (defaults if entered in the Basic data screen). Material Group A (freely definable) key that’s used to group several materials or services for analysis/reporting as well as search by match code. Sales Unit This is the unit of measure in which the material is sold, if different from the base unit of measure. Delivering Plant Plant, from which the material is available for sale. This is a default value only. Cash discount Indicator used for materials, which allow for a cash discount.

Material Master — Tax data & Quantity stipulations: 

Material Master — Tax data & Quantity stipulations Tax data Country Country Tax category Taxes, applicable to this material (e.g. Federal, State taxes in US, VAT in GB) Tax classification taxable, exempt Quantity stipulations Min. order quantity Min. quantity a customer can order (in base unit of measure). Min. delivery quantity Min. delivery quantity to a customer. Delivery unit Only multiples of this number will be delivered to the customer.

Material Master — Sales: sales org. : 

-Grouping terms Matl statistics group Material pricing grp Volume rebate group Acct assignment grp Commission group Item Category group Material Master — Sales: sales org.

Material Master — Grouping terms: 

Material Master — Grouping terms Matl statistics group Helps to determine which data the system updates in the Logistics Information System (LIS). Material pricing grp A way to group materials with similar pricing conditions. Volume rebate group A material can be assigned to a volume rebate group (e.g. Low Rebate, High Rebate) if the material qualifies for rebate. Acct assignment grp A grouping of materials with the same accounting requirements (used to determine revenue and sales deduction accounts) Commission group Several materials can be assigned to the same commission group, if the commission sharing between representatives is the same for these materials (e.g. Rep.A: 6%, Rep.B: 10%, Rep C: 12%). Item Category group A grouping of materials, that helps the system determine the Item Category. Item Category determines how a specific item is processed by system. E.g. a text item is not relevant for pricing.

Check Tells the system when to do an availability check, as well as which MRP elements (such as purchase orders, reservations) to include in the check. Shipping data (times in days) Trans. Grp Transportation groups are groups of materials that have the same transportation requirements. For example, all goods that need refrigeration. Loading Grp Loading groups define materials that have the same loading requirements, such as forklift truck, or crane.

Material Master — Packaging material data & General plant parameters: 

Material Master — Packaging material data & General plant parameters Packaging material data Matl grp ship. matls, or Material group shipping materials Freely definable group name, which is used to indicate groups of materials with similar shipping materials, such as liquids or bulk, for example.

Sales & Distribution - Pricing -


Pricing “World-class” functionality Highly customizable & extendible One of the most complex features of SAP Used to determine the net price for a material or an order

Pricing Process: 

Pricing Process Standard pricing calculates the gross price, then applies discounts, surcharges and applicable taxes to arrive at the final price final price = gross price - discounts + surcharges + taxes Cost-plus pricing determines the base cost and applies the appropriate discounts, surcharges and taxes final price = cost - discounts + surcharges + taxes

Pricing Components: 

Pricing Components Pricing is based on a matrix of predefined and custom elements Delivered element groups (a.k.a. conditions) Prices Discounts & Surcharges Freight Taxes


Pricing Procedure In short, the mechanism used to arrive at the final price Considers all of the applicable pricing conditions, e.g. material price, customer discount Is assigned by: sales area, sold-to party and sales document type (e.g. sales order)


Pricing Procedure The pricing procedure uses what SAP calls “the condition technique”. The pricing condition technique starts with the: Pricing Procedure which looks at Conditions which use Access Sequences which accesses Condition tables which point to A price, discount or other condition ($)
