Sales / Purchase set

A product set consists of a parts list with an unlimited number of articles and services. These sets, which are predefined in the product master data, can be adapted and changed individually per customer or supplier order when they are entered.

Product sets are predefined in the product master data and, in addition to the actual information about the product set, also contain a single-level parts list consisting of articles, services and their quantities.

Determination of stock entry as well as price and discount calculation

The set definitions determine how the stock will be entered and the specifications for pricing and discounting. Optionally, the stock entry and the price and discount determination can be saved directly on the product set or for each individual sub-item in the set.

Enter one item, display the complete set in the order

A product set is treated as a single article when entering an order. When the article is saved, the entire set is automatically included in the order.

Areas of application

In contrast to building groups or parts lists in Production Planning and Control (PPS), product sets are not normally produced. The sub-items and services are the individual, single item parts breakdown after transfer to an order. Product sets are always used when a product consisting of individual items or components is be bought or sold. For example, an office furniture combination may consist of a desk, an office chair, a filing cabinet and a waste paper basket. However, the set definition can also include a basic variant of a product set, which is adapted per order as required.
