The following examples use price simulation for quotation headers and single line items.

If you create a quotation with the following lines:

10 units of item BR-12 (cost price per unit USD 9.52 and sales price per unit USD 15.32).

12 units of item BR-14 (cost price per unit USD 7.48 and sales price per unit USD 13.75).

The quotation lines are as follows:

 Calculation Result Sales quantity 10 units + 12 units 22 units Sales value in USD ((10*15.32) + (12*13.75)) 318.20 Cost value in USD ((10*9.52) + (12*7.48)) 184.96 Contribution margin in USD (318.20 – 184.96) 133.24 Contribution ratio ((318.20 – (10*9.52)/318.20) * 100) 41.87 %

If you run a price simulation and apply a 15% total discount for the entire quotation, or quotation header, the new totals of the quotation with the price simulation are as follows:

 Calculation Result Sales quantity 10 units + 12 units 22 units Old sales value in USD ((10*15.32) + (12*13.75)) 318.20 Old cost value in USD ((10*9.52) + (12*7.48)) 184.96 Old contribution margin in USD (318.20 – 184.96) 133.24 Old contribution ratio ((318.20 – (10*9.52)/318.20) * 100) 41.87 % Price simulation 15% total discount in USD (15*318.2)/100 47.73 New sales value in USD (318.20 – 47.73) 270.47 New contribution margin in USD (270.47 – 184.96) 85.51 New contribution ratio ((270.47 – 184.96)/270.47) * 100) 31.61 %

# Single line item price simulation

If you create a quotation with the following lines:

10 units of item BR-12 (cost price per unit USD 9.52 and sales price per unit USD 15.32).

12 units of item BR-14 (cost price per unit USD 7.48 and sales price per unit USD 13.75).

The quotation lines are as follows:

 Result Calculation Sales quantity 10 units + 12 units 22 units Sales value in USD for BR-12 10*15.32 153.20 Sales value in USD for BR-14 12*13.75 165.00 Cost value in USD for BR-12 10*9.52 95.20 Cost value in USD for BR-14 12*7.48 89.76 Contribution margin in USD for BR-12 153.20 – 95.20 58.00 Contribution margin in USD for BR-14 165.00 – 89.76 75.24 Contribution ratio in USD for BR-12 ((153.20 – 95.20)/153.20) * 100 37.86 Contribution ratio in USD for BR-14 ((165.00 – 89.76)/165.00) * 100 45.60 Total sales value in USD ((10*15.32) + (12*13.75)) 318.20 Total cost value in USD ((10*9.52) + (12*7.48)) 184.96 Total contribution margin in USD (318.20 – 184.96) 133.24 Total contribution ratio ((318.20 – 184.96)/318.20) * 100) 41.87 %

If you run a price simulation and apply a 10% total discount to the BR-12 units, the new totals of the quotation with the single line item price simulation are as follows:

 Calculation Result Sales quantity 10 units + 12 units 22 units Old sales value in USD for BR-12 (10*15.32) 153.20 Price simulation, 10% discount for BR-12 (10*153.2)/100 15.32 New sales value in USD for BR-12 (10*15.32) – 15.32 137.88 Sales value in USD for BR-14 12*13.75 165.00 Cost value in USD for BR-12 10*9.52 95.20 Cost value in USD for BR-14 12*7.48 89.76 New contribution margin in USD for BR-12 137.88 – 95.20 42.68 Contribution margin in USD for BR-14 165.00 – 89.76 75.24 New contribution ratio in USD for BR-12 ((137.88 – 95.20)/137.88) * 100 30.95 Contribution ratio in USD for BR-14 ((165.00 – 89.76)/165.00) * 100 45.60 New total sales value in USD ((10*15.32 – 15.32) + (12*13.75)) 302.88 Total cost value in USD ((10*9.52) + (12*7.48)) 184.96 New total contribution margin in USD (302.88 – 184.96) 117.92 New total contribution ratio ((302.88 – 184.96)/302.88) * 100) 38.91 %

The price simulation only affects the line for which it is applied, reducing the total for that line.
