      I have been seeing more and more food and beverage customers that are looking for a fixed price bid on their projects. 
      My company is more service based and does not build panels in-house. In my case I approach this as any project by estimating the cost of my engineering and overhead and then adding my material cost + %.
      For larger projects such as a machine rebuild we would use the same method to determine our pricing and put payment milestones in our quotation. This protects the client as well as us.
