This function prints an estimated-cost report of all open concrete tickets. Keystone lists he tickets together for each job, with a job total and a per-yard average for the job. Unlike other estimated-cost reports, Keystone calculates cost and profit by the ticket, not just for the mix product. Three additional subcategories of cost are included, to give a more complete profit measure: 1. Other product costs (usually admixes) on the same ticket. 2. Delivery cost (dollars per minute). 3. Plant cost (dollars per unit).

The delivery cost is calculated as the Delivery Rate times the total ticket time; total ticket time includes both elapsed time from the ticket and batching time because trucking costs must include the time waiting at the plant. These additional cost estimates are based on how you configure the report: you set up standard delivery and plant costs, and define which Product Classes will be included in “other” costs. See Options below for details. The Product Cost Report by Job (page 167) prints a similar analysis for invoiced sales.

Profit Alert Report Options The Options page tab at the bottom of the Profit Alert screen allows you to set up default rates and choose product classes for the report. Note that the first three settings are defaults; they are only used if the plant of origin has no setting. Field Name Usage Batch Time If the plant of origin does not have a Batch Time constant set, the report will use this constant. Number of minutes to batch a load. Delivery Rate If the plant of origin does not have a Delivery Rate set, the report will use this rate. Cost in dollars per minute to keep a truck running and pay the driver. Plant Overhead If the plant of origin does not have a Plant Overhead rate set, the report will use this rate. Cost in dollars per unit to maintain and operate the plant. Unit Of Measure The unit of measure the report uses. You must specify the Plant Overhead rate in these units, whether specified here or for each plant in Plants file maintenance (page 140).

  Assume Discounts

Check this box to have gross profit figures calculated by assuming that you will take any paid-on-time discounts offered. The report assumes no discounts taken if the box is unchecked. Material Product Class Select the product class(es) containing the mixes you want to cost.

Other Product Class Select the product classes containing the admixes and other products whose costs are factored in.
