Simulate Sales Prices

This procedure is used to simulate and then check a sales price used in costing. Sales prices are simulated for one item at a time.

It is also possible to update the sales price of an item based on the simulation.

Before you start

Follow these steps

  1. Select 'Sales Price. Simulate' (OIS325).

  2. Specify the item number and price list, and then press Enter. If the selected price list is connected to a costing model for sales prices, the simulated costing is displayed. If the price list is not connected to a costing model or if you want to change the costing model, go to step 3. Otherwise, go to step 4.

  3. Specify a costing model or change the proposed model. Press Enter to view the simulated costing.

  4. Check specific information in the costing as follows:

    • To see how the sales price costing is calculated, press F13=Parameters and then enter the desired values. For example, if you enter 1 in the 'Display calculation base' field, the costing is displayed if the base is a purchase costing or a costed sales price list.
    • To check or change the purchase costing of a certain costing model, press F14=Purchase values.
    • To simulate transaction price elements, the key values used to select rates can be specified. To do this, press F15=Transaction values.
    • To view graduated prices in a scale, press F16=Graduated sales prices.
    • To simulate a calculation base, press F18=Simulate base.
  5. To update the sales price list with the simulated prices, go to step 6. Otherwise, go to step 8.

  6. Press F10=Update sales price to update the simulated costing result to a price in the price list. If the price list is a base for other price lists, you can choose whether to update the other price lists too. To do this, enter the correct value in field Update option in the H panel and then press Enter. Panel 'Sales Price List. Open Basic' (OIS021/E) is displayed.

  7. Check the values. You can also change and add to the information.

  8. To simulate the sales price of a new item, return to step 2. To end, press F3.
