Adding a secondary cost calculation formula

  • Updated

The secondary cost calculation feature enables you to customize your evaluation criteria across different scenarios when performing scenario analysis. For example, you could add a secondary formula featuring a penalty for poor delivery times that did not feature in your primary cost calculation.

You can add a secondary cost calculation formula on the Cost Calculation page. You can edit or delete secondary cost calculations after you add them.
