Work Center Rates

Select Work Centers by Plant
Only those work centers available for a specific plant are displayed when developing an estimate for that plant location.

Calculation Input Fields
Costimator 10 now gives users the ability to input a formula into any numeric input box.

Part Save As
By using the Save As feature the user can save the current part under a new part number. This will treat the current part as a new part and not rename or delete the previously saved part.
