Quantity takeoff templates
The quantity takeoff classifications and breakdown structures can be similar. However, they also depend on the object type, location, construction technology, defined standards, etc.
Once created, quantity takeoff rules can be exchanged and used for further projects or shared with other users as Quantity Takeoff Template.
If the created QTOs are universal and can be applied to several projects, they can be exported to the Knowledge base. On the other hand, if they are more user and project specific, they can be exported as a custom template.
Similarly, it is possible to import predefined templates from Knowledge Base or custom-created ones.
