Function documentationControlling Value-Added Services With Conditions Locate this document in the navigation structure

 

If some of your customers require value-added services either on a regular or on an article-specific basis, you can define these as conditions. The system checks whether conditions are present each time you create a sales or purchase document. If there are, the condition records data is copied automatically into the document. This avoids having to manually enter the same value-added services every time you create a document.

You can put a time limit on each condition if, for example, your customer requires certain value-added services on a seasonal basis.

You can specify the condition types you need for the determination of VAS conditions and you can assign the previously defined access sequences to the condition types. You use the condition type to define the properties, field combinations and business importance of condition records.

SAP Fashion Management provides the following condition types:

  • the validity period of the condition

  • the VAS articles you want to use

  • the key combination and usage

  • the VAS details such as the service type and subservice type, article, requirement relevance, procurement relevance, and VAS increment

In addition to the above, in case of sales documents you can specify the customer, customer group, distribution center, division and sales organization and in case of purchasing documents, you can specify the purchasing organization, purchasing group, and vendor.

You can also use the Create with reference to create a new condition record by making use of an existing condition record as a reference.

You can not only create new conditions, you can also change existing conditions.

Determination Process in Documents

When you create a document, the system checks whether determination is enabled for the document, if enabled, the system checks if VAS condition exists for all the combinations based on the validity period. If the conditions are found, and if the necessary customizing is maintained, then VAS condition is copied into the document.
