Tip of the Month - Weight Calculations

After going through this website you might be well aware that a bill of materials software program is pretty good at adding up the costs. For ROBO Bill of Materials there are three costs which get totalled, which is a handy feature. But one overlooked feature is that in addition to working out the differing costs, it is also possible to calculate the weight.

For some industries this may be irrelevant, but for other companies this could be very useful information. One company I worked for had to complete a large order, then get this air freighted to another country. As we had an extremely tight deadline, we needed to know well in advance how much the products would weigh, to book the space on the plane.

Please revisit this webpage next month for more great tips.
