    each stakeholder who you sign in has a GUI that is suited for them...their own tools Logistics tools would help in organizing just in time delivery...

    then later when project is done you hand over to contractor who has all the products and relationships you developed over the months and they he starts to work on Logistics....placing a truck sets a time and notifies the local ready mix plant that something is happening...

    then as soon as i dropped this into the cEarth environment the supplier would immediately say "Lets get the fabricator involved with this & see what his comments are" this way im not finding out late in the game how best to do this...AND since they have been invited into the cEarth area...they already know its location on the earth and any shipping issues....also since they know the area & terrain may they have a better product that would work better

    then we can share back our BOMs to a suppliers to get a volume discount. never having to email anyone anything...

    if they made an OpenBOM CATALOG of their items then we can just ref their products and know its alway up to date in our VW sheets... Fernco is just one example...it could be any company...

    So i found a Retail Price list produced by the Fernco company...IF they got rid of that archaic form of listing and use OpenBOM then they would not need to publish these listings...& publish new books & distribute them when they update new pricing.....

    so i took some time to make a CATALOG in OpenBOM for the common parts I use in my VW models...(see image) this is a browser based system that can link into programs like Solidworks, Onshape & others...this means that a BOM created in OpenBOM in the cloud can make a spreadsheet appear ON your drawing sheets IN VW...

    a sample pdf made by OpenBOM...based on a BOM developed in VW costs are retail. Hence, you can find lower costs. note the link... Test VW.PDF

    Guys, I just started this "getting material cost" a few days ago and never realized how hard it was...I appreciate all the above feed back and understand that some points you raised are valid & I do not see an answer to...at this point...but someone is going to figure it out because its someones job & they want to do it better and faster... Pat, thanks for your feed back. Jeff, thanks for your feed back.

    The next guy in line is Jeff...He is the actual designer...I just make a clean model of his sketches...He gets stuck with getting costing...I have been providing BOMs for the past few projects to help him...So I set up an OpenBOM account (cloud based works like Google Docs) and got everything set up. Now he can use... This will simplify his work...

    Which brings me back to one of the issues I had when doing this...why can I get pricing for 90% of the parts but 10% are hidden away?

    The question is valid... Guys...those numbers have value to someone...ok maybe the cad guy should not get bogged down with them...but if the cad guy can streamline VW in such a way so that the person next in line can figure costing easier...then wow!

    did anyone drag the image to their desktop and enlarge so as to see numbers?
