## Return on Design Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Return on Design.

**ROD = +S / TSD * 100**

- Where ROD is the Return on Design (%)
- +S is the increase in sales generated from design ($)
- TSD is the total spent on design ($)

## How to Calculate Return on Design?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Return on Design.

Example Problem #1:

- First, determine the increase in sales generated from design ($).
- The increase in sales generated from design ($) is given as: 325.

- Next, determine the total spent on design ($).
- The total spent on design ($) is provided as: 780.

- Finally, calculate the Return on Design using the equation above:

ROD = +S / TSD * 100

The values given above are inserted into the equation below and the solution is calculated:

ROD = 325 / 780 * 100 = 41.67 (%)

Example Problem #2:** **

For this problem, the variables needed are provided below:

increase in sales generated from design ($) = 600

total spent on design ($) = 4120

This example problem is a test of your knowledge on the subject. Use the calculator above to check your answer.

ROD = +S / TSD * 100** = ?**
