You can use these calculators to calculate material requirement, costs, production time, and more..
Most manufacturing processes require some large initial cost, such as that for equipment or tooling, which can be financed over several years. Based on the annual interest rate and payment term (months), the required monthly payments, total cost after interest, and the cost per part will be calculated.
Labor Cost Calculator
Determine the impact of labor on total production costs and part costs.
Material Usage Calculator
Calculate the total amount of raw material required, based on such parameters as the part weight, defect rate, and parts per cycle. Other useful weight calculations are provided as well, including the shot weight, material yield per cycle, scrap weight, and the weight of the parts and waste material.
Production Time Calculator
The production time for a manufacturing process is primarily determined from the cycle time, but must also account for the defect rate, machine uptime, and machines used. Using these parameters, the run quantity, run time, down time, total production time, and production rate (parts/hr) will be calculated.
