Waste classes are used when you need to calculate waste cost for job parts using more waste percentages rather than the standard one. You can assign a waste class to:

  • systems
  • series
  • profiles
  • accessories

Adding new waste classes

Note N.B: To start working with waste classes you have to access Waste classes from Archive menĂ¹.

  • Click on File:tastopiu.png to add a new item
  • Set a name and description for the new waste class (e.g Gaskets and profiles).
  • Set a percentage value for the new class.
  • If the waste class is available only for a specific color, we can set it in the related field.
  • Repeat these steps for every waste class you wish to add to your database.

Assigning a waste class

Note N.B: A waste class can be assigned from the archive items.

  • System (Systems) and Series (Series): we can assign a new class in these dialogs using Profile waste class and Accessories waste class fields
