Quantum MX can be configured to automatically apply parts and labor markups or discounts for individual customers. Commonly, parts are marked up using a percentage factor, and labor is discounted using a discrete dollar value. When Quantum MX computes the labor and parts costs for a Work Order, the customer's markup and discount settings will be used automatically.

Order of Precedence

Markups and discounts are computed for new items using the following order of precedence. Default values are specified at the team, part and customer levels. Once applied, the default markups for work order items may be modified specifically from within the work order parts kit or accounting settings.

Parts Markup in the Work Order

The customer's parts markup will be used as the default markup for all parts that are added to a work order for an aircraft that is owned by the customer. Once added, the part price and markup are stored in the work order and no longer depend on the customer settings. These settings may be modified using the work order Parts Kit.
