  2. Click on your Item and add costs from 6 primary resources categories: Labor, Owned Equipment, Rental Equipment, Material, Subcontractor, Other (customizable category) or add a Crew or Assembly that's pre-populated with your resources.

  3. Add Markup on your entire project and/or markup your primary resource categories separately. Add Overhead and an Indirect.
