Enter the total number of picks and the total amount of time (hrs) into the Pick Rate Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Pick Rate. 

Pick Rate Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the Pick Rate.

PCK = #P / T

  • Where PCK is the Pick Rate (picks/hour)
  • #P is the total number of picks 
  • T is the total amount of time (hrs) 

How to Calculate Pick Rate?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Pick Rate.

Example Problem #1:

  1. First, determine the total number of picks. 
    • The total number of picks is given as: 30.
  2. Next, determine the total amount of time (hrs). 
    • The total amount of time (hrs) is provided as: 10.
  3. Finally, calculate the Pick Rate using the equation above: 

PCK = #P / T

The values provided above are inserted into the equation below and computed.

PCK = 30 / 10 = 3.00 (picks/hour)


Example Problem #2: 

For this problem, the variables required are provided below:

total number of picks = 50

total amount of time (hrs) = 15

Test your knowledge using the equation and check your answer with the calculator..

PCK = #P / T = ?
