Price information about the assigned devicesEach device in this group has its own calculation. For example, you have several trucks that are assigned to the imputed device group 'Truck'. Because of different size, consumption, maintenance costs, etc., each truck has a different calculation, which is reflected in the required prices. In the price information you get information about the average price of all assigned trucks, the minimum (the lowest price) and the maximum (the highest price). You should definitely include these values ​​in your price considerations. If, for example, the minimum and maximum are very far apart, it makes sense to create sub-groups (e.g. by dividing up weight classes). This means that the calculated values ​​correspond better to the actual prices.
