Hi RP World,

I work at a Navy Lab and we have been running a SLA 190 for about the last
two years, but have just purchased a SLA 3500 (big jump) and are in the
process of getting a space ready to receive it. Here at the base I work in a
Cost Service Center which charges the Engineers by the hour for their SL
parts. It is not our mission to make a profit on these parts but to cover
our maintenance and equipment cost. We are here to provide in house services
for the Stations Engineers. My question is to Service Bureaus and other in
house SLA facilities how do they charge. I have heard that most Service
Bureaus have a spread sheet program in which they plug in zmax, part volume
and other value and it gives them a price. Some of the Engineers need cost
estimates on their part so I have to look at the part, z waits and guess at
draw time and try to come up with a number that makes everyone happy. Any
help I could get would be greatly appreciated. Is anyone willing to share a
version of an EXCEL spread sheet that I could modify perhaps. You can also
e-mail directly or phone me.

Thanks in advance
