## Downtime Cost Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Downtime Cost Calculator.

**DC = DT * ARU**

- Where DC is the Downtime Cost ($)
- DT is the total downtime (hr)
- ARU is the average revenue per hour during uptime ($/hr)

## How to Calculate Downtime Cost?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Downtime Cost.

Example Problem #1:

- First, determine the total downtime (hr). The total downtime (hr) is given as 5.
- Next, determine the average revenue per hour during uptime ($/hr). The average revenue per hour during uptime ($/hr) is provided as 200.
- Finally, calculate the downtime cost using the equation above:

DC = DT * ARU

The values given above are inserted into the equation below:

DC = 5 * 200 = 1,000.00 ($)

Example Problem #2:** **

The variables needed for this problem are provided below:

total downtime (hr) = 6

average revenue per hour during uptime ($/hr) = 150

Entering these values and solving gives:

DC = DT * ARU = 900.00 ($)
