Calcuation scheme MM purchase order


I have a question regarding the prerequisites if you need to create a new calculation scheme for a new company

We have currently 1 calc scheme in our template for Standard PO. For approx 10 companies . purchase organisations.

Now new Company will join and Need some new pricing conditions which will not be used by the existing companies.

What is the best way to handle this. Add the new pricing conditions to the existing calc scheme or always create a new one?

There is no restriction of other companies to see the new conditions..

So what would be the benefit of creating a new one, or adding to existing. Maybe FI could have an Impact/

Thanks in advance

Hi Boris

For a scenario like this, I would add the new condition types, to the existing schema. There is not enough different with the new company to justify a new schema.

There is no hard and fast rules on when to build a new schema - this is part of the 'art' of building an efficient but accurate system design. There is always a compromise between meeting every requirement individually, and minimising maintenance. Just bear in mind that schema must be automatically determined, via the combinations of Purchase Org and Vendor Schema Group. No other objects can influence this determination.

You are correct that FI could have an impact here. In particular, a requirement to post to different GL accounts via the Account and Accrual Keys would justify a new schema. As would different Taxation needs.
