A costing version can contain content about item purchase price records. The primary purpose of allowing purchase price content is to define purchase price records for component items, which can then be used to calculate the costs of manufactured items. To support this purpose, you must define a BOM calculation group that contains a cost price model of item purchase price, assign the BOM calculation group to purchased items, and then use a cost price model of BOM calculation group when you perform BOM calculations with planned costs to calculate the sales price of manufactured items.
Beyond this purpose, the item purchase price records are only used for reference information. Changing the status of an item's purchase price record from pending to active can update the item's base purchase price, but the base purchase price is not site-specific, and it can be manually overridden. The item's base purchase price acts as a default purchase price on purchase orders.
