Enter the total inventory (units) and the total time into the Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Throughput Capacity. 

Throughput Capacity Formula

TC = I / T


  • TC is the Throughput Capacity (units/time)
  • I is the total inventory (units)
  • T is the total time

To calculate Throughput Capacity, divide the total inventory by the total time.

How to Calculate Throughput Capacity?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Throughput Capacity.

  1. First, determine the total inventory (units). 
  2. Next, determine the total time. 
  3. Next, gather the formula from above = TC = I / T.
  4. Finally, calculate the Throughput Capacity.
  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 inventory (units) = 30

total time = 20
