Machine Time Tracking and Costing

Job Tracking
Jobs

To help you see costs more clearly and quote more accurately, we’ve introduced a new method to break out machine, labor, and overhead rates within Fulcrum. Previously, work centers used a blended rate of machine and labor costs, but now users can see more detailed job-costing information by breaking out the labor and machine estimates. This way, you can track machine and labor time separately to ultimately arrive at more accurate job costs for complex jobs or for machines that can run lights out.To take advantage of this new feature, flag work centers and the associated operations that you’d like to track machine time against in your business setup. This will enable machine time estimates on the associated BOM/Routings and tracking of machine time in the job tracker.
