Graduated Price Scale in an MM Contract
In ECC 6.0 we are looking to enter a pricing scale condition in a contract to put in place a discount once we hit a quantity across all our release orders.
For example, after we by 1,000,000 the price drops dramatically. There is a contract for the part with a vendor with many release orders that are summed to determine when we hit the 1,000,000th part.
Graduate price scale conditions work for individual purchase orders, but we haven't been able to get the price scale to work for the contract so that the release order with the 1,000,001th purchase is at the lower price.
Does anyone know how to implement graduated scale pricing for the purchasing contract?

Std SAP does not support this kind of solution but you can acheive with custom solution of wrok around is
make the contract with two line items having same materail and conditions except the price for second line should be the price you pay after 1000000 qty
in your case you can create contract for material with first line
is qty 1000000 @ $10 and the second line
enter any number of qty with discunted price so when you create the release order always use first line upto you reach the maximum limit and than use line item 2 for all remiaining orders.
I know this is not straight forward solution but without custom developement oyu can work only this way because in MM the accumalative functionality like SD does not exist.
