The price overview in CALC4XL Cost Breakdown has now also been extended to include graphical evaluations of the cost types.
Furthermore, the price overview and diagrams can now be copied & pasted into other files.
Print technology plan in Mechanical Machining and MAG Welding
Via the “Print” button you can now print out the entire technology plan and forward it e.g. to your production.
If you open a CALC4XL file whose database is unknown, CALC4XL asks you to manually attach a suitable database.
If you have defined a default CALC4XL database, you can now connect it directly to the file at the touch of a button.
Current process time calculators
New process time calculators
You have two possibilities to change the assembly (module) level, which defines the belonging of the cost elements to each other:
Option 1 (previous solution):
(A) Click on the line of “housing outside”.
(B) Click on “Move”.
(C) Click on “tie rod complete” to move “housing outside” below it (level 2).
Option 2 (the new solution):
Overwrite the number “3” in the line of “housing outside” with a “2” (1).
CALC4XL automatically resorts all elements.
The price overview in the CALC4XL Super-BOM has been expanded by graphic evaluations of the cost elements.
Insert picture comments from the clipboard into each Excel cell using the function ‘CALC4XL: Add/change picture comment from clipboard’.
Steps to connect the standard CALC4XL Benchmark database
Easier login process
Manage your supply chain
Create your own process and machine groups, e.g. favorites list
Equipment, consumables and use (%) of a machine are now stored in the DB for own machines.
The shift model can be changed individually on each machine.
The “working hours per year” is determined from the work system entered in the project specification calculator.
If a specific machine is to be used in another work system (shift model) (e.g. production in 3 shifts, packaging in 1 shift), you can change it only FOR THIS machine by clicking the padlock symbol.
Once the padlock icon is open, a change to the work system in the project specification calculator no longer has any effect on this machine.
The work system (shift model) can now be changed individually on each machine.
Specify the source of the machines and filter the machine list
When creating machines you should specify the source of the machine (e.g. supplier name).
Then you can later filter using this source and display, for example, all machines of a supplier that have already been negotiated.
