Functions

Site-specific data, material, machinery, volume or overheads may be arranged or changed via self-explanatory input windows.

The function „AllCalculations“ will give you an overview of cost factors for all individual calculations. Easy coordination of process parameters is a special strength of this function.

Transfer your cost analysis into the „Cost Breakdown“ together with all quotation-specific data. You may add pictures from the calculations by mouse click to improve the presentation.
