Tip of the Week – Waste Factor
In this edition of “Tip of the Week”:
Do you not have enough Rim material being shipped to each job? Adjust your Waste Factors to get it “just right”!
Other examples of areas that commonly may need waste percentage adjustments:
• Wall studs and wall bracing
• Roof and floor decking
• Blocking for walls and floors
Here’s how you do it:
1. Go to the ‘Profile’ tab and select the ‘Formulas’ tab.
3. Within the ‘Waste’ column, enter the waste amount needed. Here we have entered ’10’ for 10% waste to be calculated each time that ‘Rim’ is estimated. After entering the amount desired, tab out of the waste cell.
