Pricing with Graduated Scales
You can maintain condition records with graduated scales. Using a graduated scale allows you to price an item for each level of a pricing scale. By comparison, when you use normal scales, the system determines one price depending, for example, on the item quantity; the same price then applies to each unit of the item. With graduated scales, the result is that multiples prices can appear in the pricing screen for an individual item.
The following example shows how this function can be used:
The first PR02 line corresponds to the first 10 pieces, the second line to the next 10 pieces, and the third line to the last five pieces. The subtotal line for the gross value shows the average price per unit for the total number of25 pieces.
How Graduated Scales are Controlled
The use of graduated scales is controlled in Customizing for SD. The scale type is entered for the definition of a condition type. The standard R/3 System includes condition type PR02 (Price with graduated scale). Depending on the requirements of your business processes, you can modify existing condition types or create new ones that specify graduated prices or discounts.
Graduated scales are used in prices, discounts and surcharges. However you cannot used graduated scales for group conditions.
