Making the Project Ready for Export to the Historical Database
When all the weight items are entered into the breakdown structure and the lightship weight is complete, the weights can be exported to the common historical database. However, the main objective is not to export the weights alone. In order to establish an estimation coefficient, the estimation parameters should be exported together with the weights.
To enlighten this, look at the following example:
In the cargo area the weights has summed up to 300 tons. An estimation formula is attached to the cargo area weight group.
The formula goes: W = k * V
The weight equals a coefficient multiplied with the volume of the cargo area.
If we export just the weight and not the volume parameter, a coefficient cannot be established for later estimation. Therefore we would like to register the volume parameter. After registering all possible parameters the project will be ready to be exported.
