  8. 8. Basic Rules in SAP-Sales and Distribution Module Transportation Group (Material master) + Transportation Zone (Ship-to-Party) RouteDelivery scheduling:As name denotes delivery scheduling is scheduling delivery for an order and it carries thefollowing important dates: • Material availability date • Transportation planning date • Loading date • Goods Issue date • Delivery dateAvailability Check in SAP: • Availability check is carried out at item level for a plant • Availability check is done on the material availability date • If material availability date is in the past the forward scheduling is done, if not backward scheduling is done.Item category determination in the order:Item category denotes the category to which the item belongs and the following rule is used fordetermination of item category. Item category controls the way in which item behaves in a salesdocument. Sales document type + Item category group (Material master) + Item usage + Item category of higher level item Item category of the itemItem category in a sales document mainly controls the following 8

Once an order is entered taking into considerationsome major factors, the pricing procedure for the particular order is determined.The major factors taken into consideration for pricing procedure determination is: 9
  10. 10. Basic Rules in SAP-Sales and Distribution Module Sales area + Customer Pricing procedure(Customer Master –Sales area data) + Document Pricing Procedure(Sales Document Type) Pricing ProcedureWhat are the components of pricing procedure?How is that a person should work on Pricing Procedure?To start with firstDefine a Condition table:What is a condition table?A table where the key fields are data combinations for which messages are triggered (and offeredfor processing).For each data combination, there is a condition record in the table. The data part contains theactual message.As mentioned above a condition table is a table which carries key fields for picking up the prices.Define Access SequencesThe access sequence is a search strategy which the SAP System uses to search for conditionrecords valid for a condition type.For example, you can define for a price that the SAP System first searches for a customer-specific price and then for a price list price.Recommendation• If you define your own access sequences, the key should start with the letter Z since SAP reserves this letter for the standard system.• Do not change access sequences contained in the standard SAP R/3 System.Actions 1. Check to what extent you can use the access sequences contained in the standard SAP R/3 System. 2. Create new access sequences by copying a similar access sequence and changing it according to your needs. Specify an alphanumeric key which may have up to 4 digits and a textual description. 3. Maintain the accesses for the access sequence by specifying the condition tables in the desired sequence. With the sequence, you define the priority of the accesses. You can display combinations of key fields using possible entries. 10
  11. 11. Basic Rules in SAP-Sales and Distribution Module 4. Generating the accesses is no longer necessary as of 3.0, as this is carried out automatically. You can generate the accesses manually, if required, by choosing "Utilities".ExampleIn pricing, you use a customer-material discount. The condition records you create are based oncustomer data from the document header and material data from each document item. Thediscount is only valid for 2% of your customers, however. Normally, this would mean that thesystem would needlessly search through every available item for 98% of your customers. In thiscase, pre step would improve system performance.Define Condition TypeA characteristic of a condition. For example, in pricing, different condition types are used todistinguish between a discount that refers to a net price and a discount that refers to a grossprice.Price elements are represented in the SAP system by condition types. Price elements can be, forexample, prices, surcharges, discounts, taxes or, freight, and are stored in the system in conditionrecords.You can, for example, define whether a discount is calculated as a percentage or a fixed amountusing the condition type.You specify an access sequence in every condition type. Thus, you define which fields the SAPsystem checks when searching for a valid condition record.Note • The pricing procedure groups all condition types together which the SAP system is to automatically take into account during pricing for a business transaction (see the section "Define and assign pricing procedures"). Remember that you can only specify manually in a document those condition types which are contained in the pricing procedure. • You can change the outcome of pricing in the sales document manually. You can limit options for changing a condition type in this IMG step. Recommendation • If you define your own condition types, the key should start with the letter Z since SAP reserves these letters for that purpose in the standard system. • Do not change the condition types which are contained in the standard SAP R/3 System.Actions 1. Check to what extent you can use the condition types contained in the standard SAP R/3 System. 11
  12. 12. Basic Rules in SAP-Sales and Distribution Module 2. Create new condition types by copying a similar conditions type and changing it according to your requirements. One reason for creating a new condition type is you may require a calculation rule for a discount which is not available in the standard system. Specify an alphanumeric key which can have up to 4 digits, and a textual description. Specify an access sequence for the condition types. You do not need to specify an access sequence for header conditions. 3. Maintain the detail screen of the condition type. You can also assign a reference condition type if the condition types you are working with are similar. Then you will only have to maintain condition records for the reference condition type.In addition, you can define the upper and lower limits for the value of a condition at condition typelevel. This way, you limit the amounts or the scale values in the corresponding condition records.Define Pricing ProceduresThe pricing procedure defines the conditions permitted for a document and the sequence in whichthe system takes these conditions into account during pricing.A standard pricing procedure is defined in the standard SAP system. It contains conditions mostcommonly used. These include material prices, discounts, and surcharges, such as freight, ortax.SAP Recommendation• Define your own pricing procedures which contain only those condition types which you use. Otherwise, the system makes un neccessary accesses to conditions.• Do not change the pricing procedures contained in the standard SAP R/3 System.Actions 1. Create new pricing procedures by copying a similar pricing procedure. o Specify a key with up to 6 characters and a description. o For a procedure, specify the condition types in the sequence of their usage. Maintain the lines of the pricing procedure 2. Afterwards define the customer determination procedures for determining the procedure. 3. Define the document pricing procedures for determining the procedure. 4. Assign the procedure to the sales document types and billing types. 5. To determine the procedure, define the allowed combinations of: o Sales area o Customer pricing procedure o Document pricing procedure o Pricing procedureShipping: 12
  13. 13. Basic Rules in SAP-Sales and Distribution ModuleThe basis for shipping is delivery.Delivery document controls the following in deliveries • Number range • Item no increment • Storage location rule • Route determination • Text determination • Delivery split • Gen. packing material / item • Order requiredDelivery item category controls: • Check min delivery • Availability check • Relevant for picking • Storage location required • Determine storage location • Automatic batch determination • Text determination procedureBilling:Billing is the last phase in the SD process .Billing is the phase where the major integration of SDand FI Module happens.Billing document has got the following structure: • Header • ItemBilling documents mainly control: • No. range • Posting block (Controls posting to accounting) • Relevant for rebate • Account determination procedure • Account determination recon account • Account determination • Output determination procedureAccount Determination in SAPAccount determination in SAP-SD happens with the following rule Sales Organization * Chart of Accounts * Account assignment group –Customer * Account assignment group-Material * 13
