Costs in Individual Purchase Orders
The cost is used to compare the determined prices with the costs and to determine contribution margin accounting. To do this, you can use the condition type VPRS as the cost price, used as a statistical value in the pricing determination procedure.
The condition type VPRS accesses the valuation segment in the material master and from here, determines the standard or average price.
The values from the vendor invoice, or from the purchase order, can be used as the cost price in individual purchase orders. You can make the necessary settings for this in Customizing.
Settings in Customizing
Billing is related to the delivery for customer individual purchase orders. You need to make certain settings in Customizing for billing document copying control at item level if you want the cost for the billing document to be taken from the vendor invoice or purchase order, and not the valuation segment in the material master. The quantity indicator in the billing document’s document flow then controls where the cost comes from.
You can find more information about costs in the Conditions and Pricing documentation under
