# Activity price definition problem

Hi Experts,

My client wants to define the activity price per Metric Ton.

I want to assign the activity in the routing of the material.

If the client gives the activity price per minute, then there is no problem for me.

But they are giving the activity price per Metric Ton.

Here, There are 3 standard value parameters applicable for the work center Set up, Machine and Labor time.

In all the above three parameters i can not assign the Activity because their unit of measure is minute.

By considering the order quantity, the system should calculate Activity price.

Please guide me.

Thanks & Regards

Bala

Hello

You can use the Work center formula. you can define the formula's in the following manner, if you having any doubts pl discuss with your PP consultant.

To enter a formula bear in mind the following points:

o Formula parameters or constants are valid as operands in the formula.

o The formula can be entered in three lines maximum.

o As well as the basic functions +, -, *, / and the arithmetic functions

SIN and COS one can also perform integer division with DIV or MOD,

calculate square roots with SQRT, exponents with EXP and natural logs

with LOG.

o At least one blank must be between the operand and the operator.

Exception: Brackets after a function (for example SIN( A ) ).

o The syntax of the ABAP-key word COMPUTE is valid for formulas (also

see HELP COMPUTE in the ABAP-editor). However formulas do not end with

a period.

o The system converts units of measure automatically so the conversion

does not need to be taken into consideration in the formula.

I hope it will suffice your requirement.
