The following communication structures are relevant in pricing:

- KOMK (pricing communication header)

- KOMP (pricing communication item)

- KOMG (allowed fields for condition structures)

For technical reasons, communication structure KOMG is used. It
combines the fields from KOMK and KOMP that are relevant for
pricing in the standard system and are offered in the field

Need to enhance the sales documents/contracts with additional fields for tiered pricing

  1. For the pricing of repair orders, we need to have pricing defined at a material & service level. So for each type of service, the price can be different by material. In order to track both the service and serviceable material, we will use the product hierarchy of the serviceable material and assign it to the service material and also assign the material to the Pricing Reference Material for even more granular pricing. Both of these values must be assigned to the Main Item.
  2. We need the tier price assigned to the sales order at a line item level. This field needs to match the field in the service order.
    1. In addition, the field needs to populate into the pricing tables so that pricing can use Tier price as a field to search against.
  3. In order to simplify pricing, we will create pricing records at different levels of the hierarchy. In order to use this for pricing, we will need an individual field for each of the 7 levels of the product hierarchy. Then these fields need to be passed to pricing tables to execute searching. This means that regardless of how many levels are listed on the material of the product hierarchy, we can easily create pricing records at any level.

Soren Detering

My name is Soren. I am the founder of Detering Consulting. I began the company in 2003 because I wanted to provide more value for SAP customers. I knew that many of them were missing out on all the great benefits that could be obtained from the software. Before establishing Detering Consulting, I completed my education by obtaining a Master’s in Computer Science. After that, I worked at SAP in Germany and SAP Labs in North America for 10 years. My extensive background in solution management, project planning and -management, implementation services and leadership includes experience in: Automotive, A&D, High Tech, Medical Equipment, and Manufacturing Industries.
Me and my teams have successfully assisted many customers with their SAP ERP software, completed several full life cycle implementation projects, and carried out over 30 projects in SAP ECC and S/4 Hana. My experience has given me the unique ability to scope out ERP solutions in a very short amount of time. I have a knack for finding untapped money-making opportunities and discovering areas where customers could be saving money. I currently live and work in Palo Alto, CA just 10 minutes away from the SAP office. I dedicate myself to helping our clients with our SAP consulting services. In my spare time, I enjoy sailing, kickboxing, and spending time with my family and our two Taiwanese Mountain dogs.
