The condition type is at he heart of the condition technique in SAP R/3. Essentially, a condition represents a major aspect or representation in R/3 of pricing activity in your organization. For example, there may be a condition type for the basic price of a material, there may be another condition type to determine a material discount, a customer discount, or a sales promotion. A material’s price might then be determined by a combination of condition types used within a pricing procedure.
