Manual "Cost mockup" Analysis

If prices of similar (exchangeable) parts in different supplier catalogs shall be compared, select the Cost Mockup analysis.

This analysis provides the prices of search and comparison parts in addition, in the subsequently exported report. Precondition is that the prices are available in an additional LinkDB column.

In the following you can find a description on how to create a Cost mockup analysis.

  1. Call the context menu command Analysis -> Create analysis... on any directory.

    -> The respective dialog box is opened.

  2. On the left, activate the desired method (here Cost mockup).

    -> On the right, now the setting options are shown.

    [Note] Note

    Only activate ONE method per search run.

  3. Perform the desired settings.

    In this example, for the directory Zylinderschrauben, prices of comparable bolts shall be compared in a supplier catalog.

    Detailed notes on the setting options can be found under Section, “Setting options for "Make or Buy", "Cost mockup" and "Suppliers" ”.

  4. Confirm with OK.

    -> The analysis is started. In the dialog box Running report generations on server you will get informed about the progress.

  5. Result

    Once the analysis is finished, the result is automatically displayed on the tabbed page Analysis. The tab label is analogously to the stated name in the settings dialog (here "Cost Mockup Analyse").

    All search parts of the set directory are listed. When clicking on a plus sign , below the respective search part, the found comparison parts are displayed. The percental values at the found comparison parts show the geometrical similarity.

    [Note] Note

    The percental values at the search parts show the value of the best search result, so that you don't have to open the list and can see the result quality at a glance.

    [Note] Note

    In contrary to Make or Buy Analysis, at the Cost mockup Analysis, also the ERP variables ERP number and material are displayed plus that variable which had explicitly been stated in the settings dialog under cost mockup options -> Price column (see above figure).

    Under Structure you can filter the results on the right.

  6. For a detailed analysis you can optionally load search and comparison part into the Part comparison as usual.

    Also see Section, “ Part comparison and different functions”.

    Details on the Part comparison can be found under Section, “ Part comparison ”.

  7. Confirm with OK.

    -> The analysis gets started.
