Part Costing and Assemblies

Parts and Assemblies

Quick and accurate cost generation is at the centre of RanFab.

RanFab will generate fast quotes with ease. Just fill in a couple of options in our purposed built wizards and the costing is complete.

Defining the costs for manufacturing a part or assemblies is achieved in a intuitive and elegant manner utilising a flexible interface.

 It is as simple as adding items to a list using the same thinking pattern you would when building the part in real life.

The approach is easy and the learning curve is fast. Training stuff to estimate is no longer a difficult task. RanFab employs wizard like navigation prompting users to enter necessary data before they move on the the next step.

RanFab includes specialised profile cutting wizards designed to simplify dramatically the process of costing the cutting and material elements.

Costing of profile cutting jobs can be done using manual time calculation and rectangle nesting or fast and accurate automatic nesting using our add-on QuoteFab for cutting time and material requirements.

Once complete you can be assured that the result is reliable and predictable.

With RanFab cutting is just the beginning. Any form of fabrication can be used and defined.

The “Add Fabrication” button will pop up the fabrication wizard from where the user picks the type of process to be used. Select the quantity, the unit time and your setup cost and click adjust profit.


That’s it the cost is added to the list and the overall total.

Bill of materials are the standard method of adding consumables and other bought in items to the construction of a cost list.

 The take off list can be complex and allow for both complete components and parts bought elsewhere or raw material costs.

The logic flows well and anyone can easily understand RanFab’s pricing structure.

Subcontracting is handled out of box and linked in with the subcontractor module.

Add the cost from your subcontractor, include the cost to deliver the parts to and from your workshop and select the desired profit margin.


You can also attached any electronic files that later you can share with your subcontractor.

Finally Miscellaneous Costs enable the user to quickly add any arbitrary cost element.

 Use this option for any and all other un-usual items that other wise cannot fit the definition of any of the previos options.


This cost is however transferred to the job cards later in production with full description.
