Optimization of Price Determination

With this feature, you can use a performance-optimized sales price calculation (transaction VKP5).

The optimized sales price calculation uses mass-enabled function modules to determine the purchase and sales prices for many articles and allows you to save runtime in the calculation process when the calculation list is built up.

Depending on the scenario used, runtime savings of up to 40 percent are possible.

This feature can be used for performance optimization, independent of the database system.
