We are having a discussion on putting a cost field as an attribute on our symbols, but a few questions have come up. First should the cost field be visible to the engineers in databook and on the schematic? That could cause issues between different vendors if the engineer shows the price from vendor "A" to vendor "B, C, or D". Second the price can change often so how do we keep the cost field up to date? Third can the cost field get added to the bom but not the schematic and can it be used as reference only?
I'm interested in knowing if others are using a Cost field?
Thanks for your answers
