Modify a group of items in run-specific pricing maintenance

You can modify the properties of a group of items while you are in the Pricing Maintenance dialog box. For example, you can only make certain lengths available for combining by using the Set Lengths option. Any changes that you make will override the values in the global pricing database, but only for the current combining run.

For information on how to access the Pricing Maintenance dialog box, see Modify run-specific pricing information.
  1. In the Pricing Maintenance dialog box, click the Pricing ribbon tab.
  2. On the menu, select Global Edit.
  3. In the Shape list at the top of the Pricing Global Edit dialog box, select the shape whose grades and dimensions you want to modify.

    The grades and dimensions of the shape appear in the dialog box.

  4. In the Grades section, click the arrow buttons to move the grades that you want to modify to the Included list.
  5. In the Dimensions section, click the arrow buttons to move the dimensions that you want to modify to the Included list.
  6. In the lower-right corner, select an option.
    The options are:
    • Increase By Percentage: Increases the prices of the selected items by a specific percentage.

    • Decrease By Percentage: Decreases the prices of the selected items by a specific percentage.

    • Increase By Amount: Increases the prices of the selected items by a certain sum.

    • Decrease By Amount: Decreases the prices of the selected items by a certain sum.

    • Set Amount: Sets the prices of the selected items to a specific sum.

    • Set Lengths: Allows you to add lengths for the selected items either one by one or as a range.

    • Set Lengths (No Price): Allows you to add lengths for the selected items either one by one or as a range. No pricing information is added.

    New fields appear at the bottom of the dialog box.

  8. Click Save.
  9. To close the dialog box, click the Close button (X) in the upper-right corner.

The changes are saved for all selected material grades and dimensions. Now, you need to recombine the materials

Example: Change combining lengths of angles

In this example, we will modify all angles so that the only available length for combining is 20 inches.

  1. In the Shape list at the top of the Pricing Global Edit dialog box, select L.

  2. Click the double arrow buttons to move all grades and dimensions to the Included list.

  3. Select the Set Lengths option button.

  4. Click New.

  5. Leave the Quantity field blank to allow Tekla EPM to use an unlimited quantity of the length.

  6. Length field, enter 20'0".

  7. In the Normal Price field, enter a price.

    For example, set the price to $25,50/CWT.

  8. Click Add.

  9. Click Save

Now, the only angle length available in recombining is 20'0".
