Summary introduction to a Price Mechanism

A price mechanism allows a customer and a supplier to identify key feedstock or cost exposure which they wish to track on a monthly or quarterly basis as a key driver of price adjustments. ProcureAnalytiq is a online software tool that enables you to track these cost developments

The benefit of a price mechanism is enables part of the price adjustment to be transparent and fair, allowing both parties to the deal to manage risk.

This is what that Price Mechanism index could look like. In this example, the parties have agreed that the Film cost is 20% of the price and there is a 10% exposure between US$ and CNY
