Enter the total downtime (hr) and the average revenue per hour during uptime ($/hr) into the Downtime Cost Calculator Calculator. The calculator will evaluate and display the Downtime Cost. ## Downtime Cost Formula The following formula is used to calculate the Downtime Cost Calculator. DC = DT * ARU • Where DC is the Downtime Cost ($)
• DT is the total downtime (hr)
• ARU is the average revenue per hour during uptime ($/hr) To calculate the downtime cost, multiply the total downtime by the average revenue per hour. ## How to Calculate Downtime Cost? The following example problems outline how to calculate Downtime Cost. Example Problem #1: 1. First, determine the total downtime (hr). The total downtime (hr) is given as 5. 2. Next, determine the average revenue per hour during uptime ($/hr). The average revenue per hour during uptime ($/hr) is provided as 200. 3. Finally, calculate the downtime cost using the equation above: DC = DT * ARU The values given above are inserted into the equation below: DC = 5 * 200 = 1,000.00 ($)

Example Problem #2:

The variables needed for this problem are provided below:

total downtime (hr) = 6

average revenue per hour during uptime ($/hr) = 150 Entering these values and solving gives: DC = DT * ARU = 900.00 ($)
