Doing math with component attributes - sum function

Is there a way to do math with numeric attributes as in creating the "Cost" property at a part level so that this attrib can be summed up at an assembly level?

Thanks in advance.

I don't think we allow 'math operators' when defining the value of an Attribute, however, there's nothing preventing you from exporting the numeric values of attributes to the expression system, performing the math there, and then exporting the results back as the value of another attribute.

I just tested this and it actually worked much better than I had expected it to.  Please note that this would be problematic if you're not running at least NX 8.0 or newer version fo NX.
