A costing algorithm defines the method to use to calculate the cost of the transactions.

Openbravo delivers the Standard and the Average costing algorithms as part of the new Costing Engine.

Each costing algorithm needs to contain and implement all what is required to calculate the costs and store them.


The main feature of a costing algorithm is the java class which includes all what's required to implement it.

The costing algorithms need to be loaded through a "System" dataset therefore can be available to every Client of the Openbravo instance.

The costing algorithms can then be listed in this window once the corresponding system dataset has been applied.

It is recommended to apply this type of system datasets to the (* organization) therefore are available for every organization of the Client.

If no record is shown in this window please contact your "System Administrator" to ensure that the "System" datasets have bee properly applied by using the following "ant" command:
ant apply.module -DforceRefData=true

Full list of Costing Algorithm window fields and their descriptions is available in the Costing Algorithm Screen Reference.
