Detailed Process Description:
You fix the base key for the Ferrochrome at 1500 EUR per 1000 M (=> the order base value = 150 EUR/100M). Knowing that value, you sell your finished product at 350 EUR per 100 M. The Stock rate fluctuations of the „Ferrochrome“ will be taken into account via the „YMCH“ condition.
The Net Rate is calculated dynamically and is influenced by the actual Stock Exchange rate of the Ferrochrome.
