Hi guys

I have been sifting through the forum looking for an answer for this and I have not found any thing and if it is there I apologize. My company is a pay for print copy company specializing in wide format printing. The issue I have is how to make a prduct that will calculate the cost of a set of prints.

Example: Customer walks threw thr door with a copy job of 5 original drawings and they need 5 copies of each made. The original drawings are 24inc long by 36inc wide. There is 6 square feet to this drawing billed at $.35 per square foot = $2.10 per page x 5 drawings = $10.50 x 5 sets of copys = $52.50

What I need is a product that a sales person can enter the amount of originals documents and copys desired and dimensions and have the system automatically calculate the cost.

My company has similar requirements and I have been looking for a similar way to calculate $/MSF for a while.

This is going to require custom coding. I don't know if there is a community module out there that does it already, maybe there is, but openerp out the the box cannot do what you are asking to do.

the Partners listed here can help you implement custom modules. https://www.openerp.com/partners/directory

Ursa systems has people on this site answering questions regularly, I have interacted with some of the silver partners also. Nice professional people.
