Enter the total amount of time (min) and the total amount of items processed into the Processing Time Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Processing Time.

## Processing Time Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the Processing Time.

PT = T / #IP

Variables:

• PT is the Processing Time (minutes per item)
• T is the total amount of time (min)
• #IP is the total amount of items processed

## How to Calculate Processing Time?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Processing Time.

1. First, determine the total amount of time (min).
2. Next, determine the total amount of items processed.
3. Next, gather the formula from above = PT = T / #IP.
4. Finally, calculate the Processing Time.
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.

total amount of time (min) = 40

total amount of items processed = 300

PT = T / #IP = ?
