The Advanced Duct version 4.1.2 will have the Installed in Shop feature. This feature was available to Classic FabShop users.
The option allows users to designate the current item will be installed on another item during the fabrication process. This will increase the item fabrication labor by a percentage, a flat value, or both.
I. Setup the Labor to be used for Shop Installed
For this example, we will set up the Angle Tap-In to have the shop installed feature enabled.
Open Central Data and expand Setups and Item Options
Expand the Rectangular folder and click on the Angle Tap-In fitting
Validate the Installed Option additional labor values you wish to use
When an item is marked as “Shop Installed” in Takeoff, add a percentage of the Fab labor and a set amount of labor time to the item's overall fabrication labor.
Add %: the value input will increase the Item Labor
Add Hours: the value input will then be added to the Item Labor
II. Allowing Pressure Class Items to be Attached/Installed to other Items
Each pressure class will require enabling the ability to use the Shop Installed feature.
Within Central Data expand Setups and then Pressure Classes
Expand the Rectangular pressure class
Click on the Items label in the navigation tree
Select the Angle Tap-In in the Item List to the right
Click on the Edit button
Change the option for May Attach to Other Items to Yes and save changes
III. Using Shop Installed option in Takeoff
Within Takeoff select the item enabled to be Shop Installed
Check the box for Installed in Shop
Notice the Fabrication labor increases and highlights as a visual reference
