# Basic cost of an industrial order

Hi All, I have a comprehension problem when calculating the job cost of a production order or reaction order.

We have the Total estimated price and the Estimated Item Value(EIV). I have already read some forums and I have the feeling that the two parameters are confused everywhere. Everywhere they talk about the EIV, but I think they mean the Total estimated Price. For me the question is, how can I either calculate or read the Estimated Item Value? In the picture below you can see that the two values differ considerably from each other.

Hello Geo Eclipse Oksaras,

first of all thank you for your answer. I already knew the post. Unfortunately, my question is not answered there. That’s why I created this post.

There is a reference to the following page.
https://esi.evetech.net/latest/markets/prices/?datasource=tranquility

On this page the total estimated price is calculated and not the Estimated Item Value(EIV) price which is used for the calculation of the production costs.

@Steve_Ronuken if your around maybe you can explain it better?

He explained how you come up with EIV.

I think you mean this part of the post from him.

,So you take the adjusted costs for each of the materials, multiply it by the quantity at ME0, add it up, and that’s the base item price (the EIV in the screenshots above), which is then used in all the cost calculations. (for manufacturing, copying, etc.)"

But how can it be, that the Redeemer EIV ist 605m ? This can not be true.

EIV of BP Redeemer Blueprint=605888263
Armageddon:100422766[×1=100422766]
Construction Blocks:5349[×450=2407464]

Linear Shield Emitter:14786[×1634=24161032]

Okay, it can be with these values after all. I have understood it now. Thanks a lot

Thank you very much. I have a last question.

Is there a suitable Type_ID list matching the latest market prices that can be found at the link.

“copy material information”

Thank you very much and i wish a nice day
