A costing version can include content about the sales price records for items. The main reason for including content about sales prices is to retain a manufactured item's calculated sales price. The calculated sales price can then be analyzed to determine how components, routing operations, and overhead contribute to the cost and sales price.

A secondary reason for including content about sales prices is to define the sales price records for component items. These records can then be used to calculate the sales price of manufactured items. To use content about sales prices for this purpose, you define the sales price model that is embedded in a bill of material (BOM) calculation group, and then assign the BOM calculation group to purchased items. Then, when you perform BOM calculations with planned costs, you select the cost price model of the BOM calculation group.

Otherwise, the sales price records for items are only used for reference information, regardless of whether the records are manually entered or calculated. By activating an item's sales price record, you can update the item's base sales price. However, the base sales price is not site-specific, and it can be manually overridden. The item's base sales price is used as a default sales price on sales orders and sales quotations.
