Features of the Labor Hours Sheet are as follows:

  • The discount set can be changed by clicking on the Set name and selecting the appropriate set.
  • Both the Job Factor and Job Hours can be adjusted by clicking on the appropriate box and keying in either a new factor or the total hours. The Job Factor is always 1.0 unless changed on this screen. This factor can be adjusted upward or downward to reflect job conditions. The Job Hours can also be changed by overriding the quantity of hours. When either value is adjusted, the other is automatically recalculated. Total values at the bottom of the screen are also revised.
  • Assemblies are broken out and listed under the zone in which they were used in takeoff.

An itemized list of the items contained in each Section can be viewed by clicking on the Section and then on  or by clicking twice on the section. For our example, double click on Section #10. The Labor Detail Screen appears.
