The identification of cost is optional and has no effect on the behavior of the model.
- If costs are entered as a negative number and final completed production is entered as a positive then a net revenue value for the process can be obtained from the Summary Report.
- Resource cost must be a number. Expressions, attributes, variables, or scenario parameters are not allowed.
Hourly cost Cost per hour for using this resource. This cost (negative 1,000,000 to 1,000,000) is added to the pre-defined Cost attribute of the entity using the resource.
Cost per use Cost each time the resource is used. This cost (negative 1,000,000 to1,000,000) is added to the predefined Cost attribute of the entity using the resource.
