Our Approach to Quoting Sheet Metal Fabrication
At Paperless Parts, we understand the difference between costing and pricing.
Finding the right price begins with calculating the correct cost. Once you establish the correct cost, then you can determine market-driven pricing. This eBook will illustrate how the Paperless Parts Platform can automate the costing of sheet metal parts for your shop.
To automate costing, you first need to understand your shop. You must know your labor rates, machine rates, and how a job flows through your shop for the different manufacturing processes you offer. Once you know your rates and process structure, you then can establish how the geometry of a part affects your costing. Beyond the varying rates and base costs of different processes and services, the key differentiator between costing one job versus another is the geometry of the part.
