1. Creating a New Estimate in Sigma
To work in Sigma, you need to create a new estimate for your project.
2. Creating Your Work Breakdown Structure
Create your estimates main headings (WBS), and then continue with the detail components of your estimate. For each heading, you’ll add components, sub-components, sub-subcomponents (and so on).
3. Adding Resources
Your estimate gives you a cost based on the resources included in the estimate, such as labor, material, equipment, etc.
4. Reusing an Assembly
To save time and provide consistency, Sigma lets you re-use an assembly from a previous estimate or from a library.
5. Check the Cost Prices
Getting the costs right is what estimating is all about. Sigma makes it easy to check and update costs in your estimate.
6. Set Automatic Markup
An automatic markup can easily be set in Sigma for each category of resource.
7. Adjusting the Sales Price
When your estimate is finished, you may want to make changes to the sale price. This is easily done in Sigma.
8. Print Reports
Sigma is loaded with standard reports that are a simple click away.
