Can you add a labor charge so when you run a report you can see parts cost separate from labor cost?

you can create a part called labour, add it to your assembly with the quantity, you could then see the total cost on the assembly cost reports.
But if you are costing your finished stock, you will also be including labour in that!

How do I find that report? It is not listed under "reports"...

Guest said "Costing Finished Stock".

Not sure what you mean. If I have 10 finished assemblies on the shelf reddy to ship then their cost should include the labour that was consumedto build them. shouldn't it?

Mark S. asked about a Report. Not sure what you mean by "Report". There's no specific labour report. In the reports there's a total stock valuation. Total value of your on hand inventory. This would include the total cost of finished assemblies which would include the cost of the labour to build them.

As guest said. Just create a new component with a part number maybe something like "LABOUR".
Set the TYPE as "MISC"
Put yourself as the supplier of that part at a price per minute or per hour.

Then in your assemblies you add a quantity of that part to the assembly. For example if it takes 15 minutes to assemble one assembly and the price of labour is by the hour then add a quantity of 0.25

Now when you look at the build cost of an assembly it'll include that labour element.

Above I said to set the TYPE as MISC. This is necessary because when you build an assembly minimrp does not take MISC items out of your inventory.

Costing finished Stock - Correct, the labour should be included in the final cost, but you need to be aware if it. Some people may decide not to include labour costs, depending on what the reports is being used for.

For reporting to my HQ purposes, i need to be able to show material costs and labor costs separately, is there an easy way to do that? I created an item for labor, but there is no way to separate that unless i manually do it?

This is my work around- might help.
Set up LABOUR as a part. Cost = £0
Add value to assemblies.
Build cost will show materials cost.

Change LABOUR cost to £xx (whatever your calculated labour cost per minute is). Refresh list of assemblies
Build cost now is materials + labour so labour cost can be calculated

I have a spreadsheet I update periodically where I've exported both lists and it automatically calculates out the difference so I can see materials costs and labour costs. It's a bit of a faff initially but it works well and pulls the labour times through from lower level assemblies.
