Set up pricing
The material database used in Pricing Maintenance contains a variety of pre-loaded material shapes. However, only the most commonly used shapes are available in Pricing Maintenance by default. Missing material shapes should be added to Pricing Maintenance in order to combine materials in several Tekla EPM modules. If the required material shapes, grades, sizes, and lengths are not available in Pricing Maintenance, Tekla EPM cannot combine materials. We recommend that you set up the Pricing Maintenance database as early as possible, so that working in Tekla EPM becomes more seamless.
You can add new shapes, grades, sizes, lengths, and pricing information to the Pricing Maintenance database.
Note that you can create and use multiple pricing data sets in Tekla EPM. The pricing data sets are referred to as supplier warehouses in Tekla EPM. Despite their name, supplier warehouses can also represent pricing that is for pricing tiers or other purposes. Supplier warehouses they can be labeled in different ways according to their purpose.
Note that the supplier warehouse labeled Warehouse is meant for items that need to be purchased, not items that are in the company's warehouse.
You can update the pricing of multiple items by importing pricing information, or by using the Global Edit and Global Edit Form commands. You can also update pricing while working in the Purchasing module, in the Estimating module, or while creating pricing forms.
