Ok, now that you have entered your BHR into the excel sheet with your minimum setup time in minutes you are now ready to enter this data into PrintSmith. There are 2 methods that you can use to setup the charges, the Job Aware method and the Cutting Charge method. The results are identical, so it doesn’t matter which one you choose. Since a picture is worth a thousand words here is a link to a 3 Page PDF that shows how to setup your charges both ways.
For each charge you simply take the Setup Charge from the Excel sheet and enter it into the Setup field. Then take the rate per lift from the Excel sheet and enter it into the Rate field. Finally, enter the default number of sheets per lift into the “In Sets” field. If you would like this field to be adjustable, simply check the Adjustable Sets box. Make sure that you have selected the “Press” and the “x Signatures” radio buttons near the bottom and you are ready. Just repeat the process for each charge.
If you have any questions, the PDF should be able to give you answer. If not, send me an email.
