  • The general install baseboard by linear feet assembly consists of single labor item which is general labor and a material item which is the actual baseboard material. The labor is going to be configured to represent the speed at which baseboard installation can be done (production rate) is 30 linear feet per hour and the material needed is 1 linear foot per linear foot of work.
  • The price to the customer is $4.67 per linear foot based on the fact the labor is priced at $50 per hour and that 30 linear feet can be done per hour plus the linear foot of baseboard material which is priced at $3.00 per linear foot.

Change the Install Baseboard price to customer

  • Changing the production rate of the installation will change the $ per linear foot
  • Changing the price of the labor will also change the $ per linear foot
  • The coverage rate of 1 linear foot of baseboard per linear foot of project can be changed to consider a typical waste factor.
  • Changing the price of the baseboard material from $3 per linear foot will also change the price per linear foot on the assembly.

If the installation can be done more quickly that the default 30 linear feet per hour adjust the 30 linear feet per hour to a number that is more fitting. If the number of hours that calculates is correct then move on to change the price of the general labor to more closely match the need. Cutting the general labor price per hour from $50 to $25 will also cut the price per linear foot of this assembly. Increasing the price of the labor will have an equal but opposite effect.

The price of general labor (hour) can also be changed. This is done by searching for the general labor (hour) and editing that labor item to the new general labor price. If there is a change to the general labor (hour) price all of the other assemblies that use general labor will also reflect this new hourly price.

Changing the material 'coverage' will also change the final price to the customer as well as changing the price of the material. 

If the labor hours to install are proper the price for the material can also be changed. Changing the material price can be done by finding the material in the item list and editing the price per linear foot.

The labor price, material price, the production rate and the coverage rate can all be changed in combination to yield the proper price, work hours and materials.
