Hi James

As mentioned I think the Cost Component Calculation is what you need and yes it can be setup
via the UI in quite a few places:

Manufacturing
https://demo-trunk.ofbiz.apache.org/manufacturing/control/EditCostCalcs

Accounting 
https://demo-trunk.ofbiz.apache.org/accounting/control/EditCostCalcs 

Catalog
https://demo-trunk.ofbiz.apache.org/catalog/control/EditProductCosts?productId=WG-1111

You can specify the fixed and variable parts of the calculation. If you need something a bit
more specific then you can code a calculation and then link that coded calculation into the
Cost Component Calculation. (See GEN_COST_CALC as an example using a mixture for fixed and
bespoke calculation).

You can add costs such as labour at various places (eg Routing Task) need to be linked to
a Cost Component Calculation rather than just a rate. You can also add a labour cost to the
actual product itself in Catalog manager 

https://demo-trunk.ofbiz.apache.org/catalog/control/EditProductCosts

and then use the button at the bottom of the screen to auto calculate an estimate of it.

So in general yes, you can setup and estimate the production costs including labour etc but
I think there might be something missing. I haven’t tested intensely in manufacturing but
even when I had setup additional costs,  so far I have never been able to get anything other
than the actual material costs to come on a production run. (I'm talking about the Actual
Costs tab linked to an individual production run). 

This could be missing setup or just that the tests I’ve done so far are not comprehensive
enough. 

Thanks
