Slabs are usage ranges defined in the form of units. Multiple price slabs are defined in the system for generating charges. In slab based pricing based on the slabs, price is calculated and invoice is raised.

The units can be charged in two ways; price per unit and fixed price.

Price Per Unit: If price type is selected as price per unit, the price defined is applied for each unit consumed.

Example: If a slab is defined as 1-10, Rs.5 price per unit. and the units consumed are 3, the total price would be No. of units * Price= 3 * 5 = Rs.15.

Fixed Price: If a slab is defined as 1-10 Rs.5. And the consumed untis are 6 units. Irrespective of the number of units consumed, the price is fixed for 1-10 units that is Rs.5.

Slab based pricing can be of two types: Volume Bulk Based and Volume Incremental Based.

Example for slab based price:

Slab |
Units |
Price (in Rs) |

S1 |
1-10 |
3.00 |

S2 |
11-20 |
1.75 |

S3 |
21-30 |
1.50 |

S4 |
31-100 |
1 |

If Usage Records as follows: U1=10units, U2=25units, U3=15units and if free units are15 then total units are (U1+U2+U3) - 15 = (10+15+25) - 15 = 35 units

Bulk wise:

Price Per Unit:

Bulk charge will be 35units*Rs.1=Rs.35

Fixed Price

Bulk charge will be Rs.1

Incremental wise:

Price Per Unit:

Incremental charge will be 10units*Rs.3+10units*Rs.1.75+10units*Rs1.5+5units*Rs.1=Rs.67.50

Bulk Price

Incremental charge will be Rs.1
