Newbie alert!

I would like to include a simple calculation in my solution.

I have a job that runs at ft. per min. I need to know how long the job will take to finish. I would like the calculation in hours.

Can someone help me with that?

Thanks

The ‘ft. per min field’ and the required footage fields exist in the solution. I would like another field that calculates the job duration in hours.

So, for example, let’s say the product is made at 60 ft. / min and the requirement is entered at 5,000 ft, I would like these two fields be used to calculate the run time answer in another field.

Dave, I used the process rate calc but maybe I just don’t get it.

Define a calculation field (result is Number) =

Footage / FeetPerMinute / 60

This will retun the duration as a decimal number of hours: 1.3888888888888889 using your example. You may prefer to change the calculation to =

Footage / FeetPerMinute * 60

and set the result type to Time, in order to receive: 1:23:19.999999

What is the input?
