Processing...

The **Production Rate Calculator** computes the length, area, volume or generic units that can be processed, produced or consumed over a period of time base on a constant rate. It also computes the amount of time needed to process, produce or consume a total length, area, volume or number of generic unit based on a total number and a constant rate.

**Units over Time**: Enter the amount of time (P) to produce or consume a number of units (N), then enter the time (T) of production or consumption and this will tell you the number of units produced in that period (X).**Time for Units**: Enter the number of units (N) produced or consumed in a period of time (P). Then enter the number you wish to achieve, produce or consume, (X), and this will tell you the period of time (T) needed to process the number of units.**Length over Time**: Enter the unit length (uL) achieved in a given duration unit of time (dU), and then specify the Total Period (P), the calculator will compute the Total Length processed over time.**Time for Length**: Enter the unit length (uL) achieved in a given duration of unit time (dU), and then specify the Total Length (TL) you wish to achieve. The calculator computes the Total Period (P) required required to process the length.**Area over Time**: Enter the unit area (uA) processed in a given duration unit of time (dU), and then specify the Total Period (P), the calculator with compute the Total Area (TA) processed in the Total Period.**Time for Area**: Enter the unit area (uA) processed in a given duration unit of time (dU), and then specify the Total Area (TA) you wish to process. The calculator computes the Total Period (P) required to process the Total Area.**Volume over Time**: Enter the unit volume (uV) processed in a given duration unit of time (dU), and then specify the Total Period (P), the calculator with compute the Total Volume (TV) processed in the Total Period.**Time for Volume**: Enter the unit volume (uV) processed in a given duration unit of time (dU), and then specify the Total Volume (TV) you wish to process. The calculator computes the total time period (P) required to process the Volume.**Amdahl's Law**: Compute the overall speedup factor based on an improvement of a portion of the process.

Units can be anything: student papers that are graded, applications that are processed, cars that are assembled, eggs that are laid, virtually anything.

**For example,** a unit could be a box of clothes and the time to process a box of clothes would be the time. If it took your organization, on average, 25 minutes to process 10 box of clothes, how many boxes could you process in 3 days? This calculator can give you that answer. Use the **Units over Time** with Number of Units (N) equal to 10, Period to Process (P) equal to 25 minutes, and Time of Production (T) equal to 3 days. If your group processed boxes 24 hours a day for three days, they would have processed 1,728 boxes.

Working the other direction. You know how many units you want to produce and your production rate, how do you compute the time to produce? This calculator can give you the answer. For example, using the same rate above (10 boxes every 25 minutes), how long would it take you to process 20,000 boxes. Use the **Time for Units** and enter Number of Units (N) equal to 10, Period to Process (P) equals 25 minutes, and now enter the Desired Number of Units (x) equal to 20,000. At constant production, it would take 833.33 hours to process 20,000 boxes (units).

Many things are produced and consumed by length, and length comes in many units. Small units can be microscopic (e.g. nanometers and angstroms), common units (e.g. feet, meters) and astronomical (e.g. light-years). This calculator automatically handles 25 different length units and their interaction with time.

**For example, **If you were painting lines on a highway, and your truck could paint six miles in ninety minutes, how much could you paint in an eight hour shift? This calculator give you that answer. Use the **Length over Time** function with the Unit Length (uL) equal to 6 miles, the Duration of Production (dU) equal to 90 minutes and the Period of Production (P) equal to 8 hours. At a constant rate, your truck will paint lines on 32 miles of highway in 8 hours.

Working the other direction. You know the length or distance you want to achieve (TL), and you know the rate, which is the Unit Length (uL) over the unit Duration of time (dU). Use the **Time for Length** function. **For example,** if you want to sail 450 nautical miles (TL), and you've been sailing 120 nautical miles (lU) every twenty four hours (dU), the calculator will compute an answer of 90 hours. You can then automatically convert that to 3.75 days via the pull-down menu.

Area is the base unit in many industries. Farmers raise crops by the acre or are. Painters paint square feet, yards or meters. Cloth manufactures produce square yards or square meters of cloth. This calculator handles 12 different units of area and their interaction with time.

**For example, **If you were harvesting corn with a combine on a farm, and your combine could harvest three acres every in twenty minutes, how much could you harvest in 12 hours. This calculator give you that answer. Use the **Area over Time** function with the Unit Area (uA) equal to 3 acres, the Duration of Production (dU) equal to 20 minutes and the Period of Production (P) equal to 12 hours. At a constant rate, your combine will harvest 108 acres of corn in 12 hours.

Working the other direction. You know the area you want to process (TA), and you know the rate, which is the Unit Area (uA) over the unit Duration of time (dU). Use the **Time for Area** function. **For example,** if you want to manufacture 3,000 square meters of fabric (TA), and your factory produces 120 square meters (aU) every twenty four hours (dU), the calculator will compute an answer of 600 hours. You can then automatically convert that to 25 days via the pull-down menu.

Volume is the base unit in many industries. Concrete is produced by the cubic yard. Milk is produced by gallon or liter. Corn is produced by the bushel and oil by the barrel. This calculator handles 23 different units of volume and their interaction with time.

**For example, **If you herd of ten Jersey cows produces seventy gallons of milk per day, how much will they produce in twelve weeks? This calculator give you that answer. Use the **Volume over Time** function with the Unit Volume (uV) equal to 70 gallons, the Duration of Production (dU) equal to one day and the Period of Production (P) equal to 12 weeks. At a constant rate, your herd will produce 5,880 gallons of milk in 12 weeks.

Working the other direction. You know the volume you want to process (VA), and you know the rate, which is the Unit Volume (uV) over the unit Duration of time (dU). Use the **Time for Volume** function. **For example,** if you want to manufacture 3,000 cubic yards of concrete (TV), and your mixers produces 120 cubic yards (aV) every twenty four hours (dU), the calculator will compute an answer of 600 hours. You can then automatically convert that to 25 days via the pull-down menu.
