The Substrates Database keeps a record of all the substrates the business uses for product manufacturing. The authors of SignQuote SA have entered a database of Falcon's list of substrates and prices. The authors use this database in their sign products manufacturing as well as other added items from other suppliers. (Fig.8.1)
The user can click here to find help for editing, adding and deleting the substrates used for generating prices. It is important to keep these up-to-date as your substrate costs change.
To select substrates in the price calculations the user has to click on the Substrates button on the Estimate Calculator form.(Fig.8.2)
When the substrates database opens, the user can select the substrate to be used in the product in one of two ways.
1. If the ID number is known to the user, it can be typed into the number space in the toolbar. When the user presses Enter or double clicks on the number space, the blue marker will jump to the line number entered. (Fig.8.3)
2. The user can also scroll down to the desired line and double click on it to select the substrate number.
When the line has been selected, clicking on the Substrate 1 button inserts the information into the Substrate 1 line including the price per square metre with the profit, handling expenses and VAT if applicable, already calculated. (Fig.8.4)
If the user intends using only this substrate for the product, clicking the OK button will then enter the substrate into the price calculation. If more than one type of Substrate is to be used, the user can just repeat the above process.
