Enter the maintenance cost per unit ($/unit) and the number of units produced into the Maintenance Cost Calculator. The calculator will evaluate and display the Maintenance Cost. 

Maintenance Cost Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Maintenance Cost. 

MC = MCU * #U

  • Where MC is the Maintenance Cost ($)
  • MCU is the maintenance cost per unit ($/unit) 
  • #U is the number of units produced 

How to Calculate Maintenance Cost?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Maintenance Cost.

Example Problem #1:

  1. First, determine the maintenance cost per unit ($/unit). The maintenance cost per unit ($/unit) is given as 5.5.
  2. Next, determine the number of units produced. The number of units produced is provided as 300.
  3. Finally, calculate the Maintenance Cost using the equation above: 

MC = MCU * #U

The values given above are inserted into the equation below:

MC = 5.5 * 300 = 1650.00 ($)


Example Problem #2: 

The variables needed for this problem are provided below:

maintenance cost per unit ($/unit) = 2.40

number of units produced = 600

Entering these values and solving gives:

MC = MCU * #U = 1440.00 ($)
