You can specify the pricesfor the resource consumption valuation individually. You can also use price determination to specify criteria, combinations of criteria or define rules for determining prices.

The system executes price determination using the condition technique. It enables you to adjust the access to the resource prices to meet your individual requirements. The system controls price determination using the following settings:

  • Condition types
  • Price tables
  • Access sequences
  • Costing sheets

In the standard system, SAP supplies price tables, access sequences, condition types and costing sheets. You can also define new, individual settings for price determination.

The following access sequences are stored in the standard access sequence K001:

You specify the criteria resource and region in an access sequence. The system uses this to ensure that you can maintain one price per region for a resource. During price maintenance, the above-mentioned prerequisites apply for one price, regarding version, currency key and validity period.

For example, for the resource “Power” in the Chicago region, price determination calculates a price of 0.22 USD in the entire fiscal year 1998 in version 000 for 100 kWh.
