Enter the old production rate (units/time) and the percentage increase (%) into the Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Production Increase.

## Production Increase Formula

PI = OPR * I/100

Variables:

- PI is the Production Increase (units/time)
- OPR is the old production rate (units/time)
- I is the percentage increase (%)

To calculate Production Increase, multiply the original production rate by the percentage increase over 100.

## How to Calculate Production Increase?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Production Increase.

- First, determine the old production rate (units/time).
- Next, determine the percentage increase (%).
- Next, gather the formula from above = PI = OPR * I/100 + OPR.
- Finally, calculate the Production Increase.
- 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.

old production rate (units/time) = 350

percentage increase (%) = 75
