Hi there;

This question is not IT related question but business related question. I want to learn about bill of materials, pricing and quotation in business area.

I need easy to understand explanation and links that a 6 year old can grab the concept.

Regards.

P.S. couldn't find a business related link

Bill of materials - just a list of what you need to buy or build the project
priceing - just the price of each of the items in the bill of materials.
Quotation - the sum of all the prices. In many cases a discount is put in here.
-
The discount is just a special price given to encourage the person paying to do it now from this particular source

I frankly doubt that a 6 year old can understand all of what you are asking for.  Most adults don't seem to understand it.  And there are many aspects to the rather broad subjects you're asking about.

Do you have a specific need or example?  In other words, what are you trying to do?

aburr's example could be a bill or an estimate/quote. Generally when company A has a project, it sends an "invitation to bid" to several contractors. These contractors will write up estimates for how much it would cost them to do the projects. They then use these estimates to come up with a "quote." The quote is just the price they say they can do the project for. They will usually include the estimate as part of the quote. If not for the "due in 20 days," then aburr's example would look just like some quotes I've seen.
