## Alloy Surcharges in BoQ Budget Calculation

Alloy surcharges are calculated in the **BoQ Budget Calculation** lines. The alloy surcharges can originate from the general alloy surcharges or ones set up specifically for the job.

The calculation of the expected alloy price and amount per Base Unit of Measure are shown in the **Exp. Alloy Price** (base) and the **Exp. Alloy Amount** (base x quantity) fields. Choose the value in either field to open the **Alloy Surcharges Lines** page.

The calculations are based on several settings (see Calculating Surcharges).

The fields on the **Alloy Surcharges Lines** page are defined for sales processing in the Alloy Management for Sales topic. Refer to these field definitions for general information.

##### Tip

You can also open the **Alloy Surcharges Lines** page by choosing **Line > Alloy Surcharge Lines** on the **Related** menu as well is in the **BoQ Position Card** by choosing **Line > Alloy Surcharge Lines** on the **Components** FastTab.

## Job-specific alloy surcharges

Alloy quotations assigned to the job will be used to calculate the surcharges (see Set up job-specific alloy charges).

## General alloy surcharges

To use the daily-based alloy surcharges, you need to define a calculate date in the job (see Specify date for general alloy surcharges). The calculation will use the alloy quotation that corresponds to the date entered in the job.

## Calculate alloy surcharges

If changes are made to either the general or job-specific alloy quotations, choose **Functions > Calculate Alloy Surcharge** on the **Actions** menu. A dialog will open to select which lines should be calculated. The expected alloy prices are updated accordingly.

##### Tip

You can also access the **Calculate Alloy Surcharge** function by choosing **Functions > Calculate Alloy Surcharge** on the **Components** FastTab.

## View alloy statistics

Alloy Statistics show the total calculated alloy surcharges (total alloy weight (kg) and expected alloy amount) for each alloy type assigned in the BoQ Budget Calculation.

To access the **Alloy Statistics** page, choose **Related > Construction Work > Alloy Statistic** on the BoQ/PaC Job Card/Jobs list or **Related > Alloy Statistic** on the **BoQ Budget Calculation** page.
