Hi Guys!

I'm working on my Factory Homes assignment and confused with "indicative cost" in Complete House Design use case. Should this cost somehow comes from Inventory System or customer should specify it before change design status to completed?

Thank you in advance!

I think the 'indicative cost' comes from the Inventory System and it is based on the house design.

Hi...

This is a your assumption. Is your decision... but...

In my opinion, this indicative cost is retrieved from Stock Inventory and Management System web service... It can the capacity for arrive this value, because it knows about all components in the actual house design and its dependencies (required features, such as heating, plumbing and so on).

This is my opinion... any more:

Thank you for your responses!

Rodrigo,
Could you please clarify what do you mean. Do you mean that Inventory and Management System (IMS) should calculate total cost of all selected house components and propose indicative cost for additional features based on this total cost? If so, what's the business meaning of this process?

Thanks,
Ilya

Hi Ilya,

I think that the "IMS" sould have a way to receive a complete house design. Through the complete house design (with all components) the "IMS" can calculate the indicative cost of the actual house design. In my opinion, analyzing the assignment, the "IMS" must fill the required features based on house design's components list, and arrive an indicative cost based on all components and its dependencies (such as heating, plubing and so on).

more opinions?

Definition: http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/indicative
showing, signifying, or pointing out; expressive or suggestive.

From this definition indicative cost means suggested or approximate cost. The 'IMS' should be able to calculate this based on house design and features.

Final cost would be decided upon during the consultation.

This would be similar to MSRP (Manufacturer Suggested Retail Price) for a new car and the final price is decided by the car dealer.

I Hope this makes sense.

That means that IMS is able to suggest a cost based on components and accessories used in house design, right?

Yes, that is my understanding.
