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


  • 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.

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

old production rate (units/time) = 350

percentage increase (%) = 75
