Changing Costing Inputs

You can perform "what if" studies to see how changes, such as lot size, might affect cost, without having to actually change the model. When you change Costing inputs, you can see how the changes affect the cost immediately.

  1. In the Costing Task Pane, under Quantity, set Lot size to 50.
  2. Press Enter.

    Because Total number of parts is 100, you would need to run 2 lots to produce all of the parts. The Estimated Cost Per Part increases because you would incur 2 setup charges, one for each lot.
