You can define price per piece for each warehouse stock used in plan. Your solution will then include the **total cost of the material**. If your plan contains different types of warehouse stock with different prices, you can use a **cost optimization algorithm** that aims to **minimize material costs**.

1) First, enable the **Prices** switch. Then select **Optimization type** and fill in **Price per piece** for every available stock used in cutting plan.

2) If you choose **Waste minimization**, default optimization algorithm is used and solution will also include **total cost of the material**.

3) Choose **Cost minimization** if you require a solution with **minimum material costs**.
