It’s just not true that on-site or field machining works are more expensive than conventional machining services. To support our claim, we are highlighting some of the budgeting basics of any field machining job, which can help you decide and plan better.

Almost all field machining jobs comprise of five necessary item costs, which can be easily determined and negotiated with your respective service providers. You can also consider this blog entry as an outline for creating a budget for your field machining project.

Job Preparations

The first and foremost cost of any field machining service is the actual job preparation cost. This includes the wage rates of the labour hired for on-site and off-site with the adjustment of tools and machines that will do the job on your given premises. Once these costs are calculated, you will get an overall idea of how much your project will cost. This cost contributes to the most significant chunk of the whole project costing. Once you decide on your project requirements, you can easily calculate the job preparation costs based on the proposal you received from your service provider.

Mobilization Of Staff And Machines

After you conclude with your job preparation costing, the second most significant cost will be the mobilization of your staff and the machines you’ll need for the project. Depending upon the devices, the skill level of the team, and the distance of the proposed work premises, you can quickly determine the total mobilization costs.

Machine And Tool Rentals

The third breakdown of your field machining service project is the rental costs you’ll need to bear for the machines and tools required at the premises of your choosing. It’s obvious that you shouldn’t buy the machines and tools for a one time job. Depending on your service provider, you can get the amount of rent needed to be paid for the overall project. This rental cost can be tricky if your project is delayed. In this context, you can request your service provider offer you flexible rental costs based on the number of days or based on the project overall.

On-Site Labour

On-site labour is the most crucial part of your field machining project. If you want to conduct your project at a remote location, chances are you’ll have to bear a high labour cost. If your premises are located near a metropolitan area, you can have cheaper labour as well, depending on the nature of the job and the availability of the resources.

Lodging And Commuting Of Staff

Finally, you will need to consider the overall lodging and daily commuting costs for your staff. You’ll have to determine this based on the location of your machining project and the demand of your working staff. It is crucial that you make sure your whole team receives a safe and healthy working and living environment with all the basic livelihood necessities.
