The KOP and more importantly the “value” of the KOP was different for rookie and veteran teams this year.
As a veteran team I used CRIO, jaguars and such from last years robot. I did not get those parts in the KOP. How are they listed on the BOM?
As a veteran team I purchased CRIO, jaguars and such that are still on last years robot. I did not get those parts in the KOP. How are they listed on the BOM?
Does every BOM reflect the rookie KOP?
Hope this helps from the Q&A…
We are a veteran team. I want to be sure we are properly calculating costs in the BOM. Rule <R23> states:
<R23> The following items are EXCLUDED from the total cost calculation:
A. All items provided in the 2010 KOP
Chapter 10 of the manual states:
The items listed on the 2010 Kit Of Parts Checklist (http://www.usfirst.org/community/frc...nt.aspx?id=452) are considered Kit Parts.
That checklist is divided into “Veteran” and “Rookie” Kits. Are we allowed to calculate costs based on the totals of both KOPs? For example, The veteran kit includes 2 Jaguars and the Rookie kit includes 2 Jaguars. Does that mean we can use 4 jaguars and list 4 Jaguars on the BOM as KOP parts and assign a value of $0.00 to them, or do we have to count 2 at $0.00 and 2 at $73.00?
Please see the the definition of “Kit Of Parts” in Section 8.2 of The Manual. For the BOM cost calculations, all items listed in the 2010 Kit of Parts Checklist are considered kit parts, regardless of whether you received them this year or not. Four Jaguars would have $0.00 assigned to them. Any additional Jaguars must be accounted for at $73.00 each.
Thanks. I did search…
I didn’t say anything…but I am smiling now.
