Editing Weldment Operations

You can edit manufacturing operations in the Costing template or in the CostingManager.

For all operations, you can apply a cost override.

If you edit the Costing template, all parts that are evaluated using this template are affected. If you edit the CostingManager, only the current part is affected.

To edit an operation in the CostingManager:

  1. Expand an item in the CostingManager.
  2. Right-click and click any of the following.
