  • The general plant shrubbery (each) assembly consists of single labor item which is general labor and a material item which is the actual shrubbery or material. The labor is going to be configured to represent the speed at which shrubbery planting can be done (production rate) is 2 hours per shrubbery and the material needed is 1 shrubbery each.
  • The price to the customer is $200.00 per each based on the fact the labor is priced at $50 per hour and that it takes 2 hours per shrubbery plus the shrubbery itself which is priced at $100.00 each.

Change the Plant Shrubbery price to customer

  • Changing the production rate of the planting will change the $ per each
  • Changing the price of the labor will also change the $ per each
  • Changing the price of the shrubbery from $100.00 per each will also change the each on the assembly.

If the planting can be done more quickly that the default 2 hours each adjust the 2 hour each 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 each 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' in this case is probably not appropriate because you need to buy 1 shrubbery to plant 1.

If the labor hours to plant 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 each.

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