Enter the assembly time (hrs) and the labor cost for the assembly ($/hr) into the Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Assembly Cost. 

Assembly Cost Formula

AC = AT * LC


  • AC is the Assembly Cost ($)
  • AT is the assembly time (hrs)
  • LC is the labor cost for the assembly ($/hr)

To calculate the Assembly Cost, multiply the assembly time by the labor rate for assembly.

How to Calculate Assembly Cost?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Assembly Cost.

  1. First, determine the assembly time (hrs). 
  2. Next, determine the labor cost for the assembly ($/hr). 
  3. Next, gather the formula from above = AC = AT * LC.
  4. Finally, calculate the Assembly Cost.
  5. After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

Example Problem : 

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

assembly time (hrs) = 30

labor cost for the assembly ($/hr) = 50
