  2. Fill in all the required information in the pop-up window.

    Field Description
    Price (required) Indicate the price and select the units: $/gram, $/kg, or $/lb.
    Vendor (required) Select a vendor from the dropdown list. If the Vendor does not exist, you can add one by typing in the vendor name and clicking on "Add <Vendor Name>". Click "Add" in the popup to confirm.
    Pack Size (required) Select a size from the dropdown list.
    Location (required) Enter the location for this price point. Note that the different price points are grouped by location in the Pricing section of the Inventory Details page.
    FOB Point (optional) Indicate the location where the Vendor will ship the material to, for free. You must pay to ship to your facility from this location. 
    Lead Time (optional) Indicate the time required by the vendor and the units: days, weeks, months, or years.
    Expiration Date (optional) Indicate if there is a date when the price is no longer valid.


  3. Click on the "Create" button. Albert will create a new price point.

  4. Click on the menu button next to a price point to edit or delete it. 

  5. Select the price you want to use for formulation raw cost estimate.
    Next to each price estimate there will be a checkbox. If you click this checkbox, Albert will use this price-point for real-time formulation pricing estimates, which appear in the formulation module.

    If you only have 1 price-point, it will be selected by default and used for formulation price estimates.
    Additionally, when you add a new Inventory lot to track physical inventory, the cost of the lot will default to the price that is selected in this section.
