Combined rules flag for characteristic exceptions in Item Classification pricing

Related topics

The Combined rules flag for the SPP price group (defined on the Work with item classification definition, Standard purchase prices, detail panel) and the SSP price group (defined on the Work with item classification definition, Standard sales price panel) is an important parameter which will dictate how characteristic value exceptions are treated.

Combined rules flag
Setting this value to NO has the following effect: Keeping the YES setting (the default value) has the following effect:
  • Only one set of characteristic value exceptions is allowed for a certain item.
  • A line code can have multiple characteristics attached to it.
  • The changes to the SPP/SSP are set up on that line number.
  • Integrity checking is needed to ensure data integrity.
  • Multiple sets of characteristic value exceptions are allowed for a certain item.
  • A line code can have only one characteristic attached to it.
  • A test is done to ensure that any set is only entered once.
  • The changes to the SPP/SSP are cumulative; all are applied.
  • If one or more of the lines has a fixed price, the lowest fixed price is to be used.
  • Integrity checking is unnecessary.

Example 1:

All items in the main group/Group combination of EuroArt/Sheet have a SPP or SSP of 1000 Euro/TON. However, for 90 grams, 50 Euro has to be added. If the Colour is Yellow, another 20 Euro has to be added.

Case 1: Combined Rules flag = No

Set-up is done as follows:

Line 10 + 50
GRM = 90
COLOUR YELLOW
Line 20 + 70
GRM = 90
COLOUR = YELLOW

Case 2: Combined Rules = Yes

Set-up is done as follows:

Line 10 + 50
GRM = 90
Line 20 + 20
COLOUR = YELLOW

Example 2:

All items in the Main group/Group combination of EuroArt/Sheet have a SPP or SSP of 1000 Euro/TON. However, for 90 grams, the price is 1250 Euro/Ton except for yellow where the price is 1220. These are fixed prices, thus we do not want to set these up using up-charges.

Case 1: Combined Rules = No

Set-up is done as follows:

Line 10 = 1250
GRM = 90
COLOUR YELLOW
Line 20 = 1220
GRM = 90
COLOUR = YELLOW

Case 2: Combined Rules = Yes

Set-up is not possible, since the price would always be 1220 (=last price) for 90 grams.
