Enter the current utilization rate (%) and the current output (units) into the Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Business Capacity. 

Business Capacity Formula

BC = CO / (UR/100)


  • BC is the Business Capacity (units)
  • UR is the current utilization rate (%)
  • CO is the current output (units)

To calculate Business Capacity, divide the current capacity by the utilization rate.

How to Calculate Business Capacity?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Business Capacity.

  1. First, determine the current utilization rate (%). 
  2. Next, determine the current output (units). 
  3. Next, gather the formula from above = BC = UR/100 * CO.
  4. Finally, calculate the Business Capacity.
  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.

current utilization rate (%) = 47

current output (units) = 800
