Multiplying Cost of Assembly without copy and paste same assembly

Multiplying Cost of Assembly without copy and paste same assembly

Multiplying Cost of Assembly without copy and paste same assembly

When formulating an Assembly, Sub-Assembly, and parts and material. I set the cost for all the material and parts, to get a total price of that one assembly.  My question now, is there a way I can just multiply that cost by inputting a variable somewhere or will I have just have to copy and past that assembly X amount of times?


3x  Box Assembly    cost $150    


Box Assembly        Cost $50
Box Assembly        Cost $50
Box Assembly        Cost $50

                    Total $150

RE: Multiplying Cost of Assembly without copy and paste same assembly

You create a customized field, something like:
Column Qty -> Number1
Column UC -> Cost
Column TC -> Number2 customized Number1*Cost

Have you tried creating Box Assembly as a Material Resource?

- Enter Box Assembly as a resource on your Resource Sheet.
- Click on the dropdown in the Type column and select material
- In the Standard Rate column enter 50
- On the Gantt Chart view, click on >Tools, >Assign Resources
- Box Assembly will now be listed as a resource.  Under the units column, input 3.
- The cost will automatically be calculated for you at $150.

Hope this helps!!
