*This user has given permission to use the problem statement for this blog.*

so im trying to find time out, and i realized it only works if i dont change the current number made, and keep it at 0. other than that, it works well. but i need to including current amount of chairs, so as the day goes along, it gives more accurate time out

Excelchat Expert

Nice to hear that

User
27/07/2018 - 06:44

so here, you see ive set up an example

Excelchat Expert
27/07/2018 - 06:44

Ok.

User

im trying to get it, as i change the current chair, the time out doesnt change

User
27/07/2018 - 06:45

as i increase the chairs done, it decreases the time out which is what i dont want

Excelchat Expert

Total number of chairs are fixed?

Excelchat Expert
27/07/2018 - 06:46

i.e. 1000

User
27/07/2018 - 06:46

built

User
27/07/2018 - 06:46

the schedule is how many we need to build, and current chair would be how many completed

User
27/07/2018 - 06:46

and chairs left is how many we still need to build

Excelchat Expert
27/07/2018 - 06:47

so for example you have built 50 chairs

Excelchat Expert
27/07/2018 - 06:48

Yes so the chairs left to be built are 950

Excelchat Expert
27/07/2018 - 06:48

so the time required to built would reduce for 950

Excelchat Expert
27/07/2018 - 06:49

Ok. I understand what you are looking for. You need to keep the clock for 1000 chairs but you want to keep increasing current chairs

User
27/07/2018 - 06:49

yes

User
27/07/2018 - 06:50

so if we run at 100% (usually do) the time to get out is 11:16 AM in this scenario.

Excelchat Expert
27/07/2018 - 06:51

=E3*B1/60

Excelchat Expert
27/07/2018 - 06:51

instead of this make it on B2

Excelchat Expert
27/07/2018 - 06:51

B2*B1/60

Excelchat Expert
27/07/2018 - 06:53

So E2 and F2 remains same

User
27/07/2018 - 06:53

alright :) so if we did end up running at say....98%, would i just add a % to it to calculate the remaining time?

Excelchat Expert
27/07/2018 - 06:54

where are you accounting for running 100% or 50%?

User
27/07/2018 - 06:54

100%, but sometimes we run at 98% if we have bad parts

User
27/07/2018 - 06:55

so like....if we ran at 98% that day, all day. instead of 100%

Excelchat Expert
27/07/2018 - 06:55

so if you run at 100% time to complete is 19 minutes

Excelchat Expert
27/07/2018 - 06:55

right

Excelchat Expert
27/07/2018 - 06:56

and if you will run at 98% it will take 19.93 minutes, right?

Excelchat Expert
27/07/2018 - 06:57

I would suggest to add another variable of efficiency

User
27/07/2018 - 06:59

alright. thank you :)

Excelchat Expert
27/07/2018 - 06:59

Since I made it fix to 19

Excelchat Expert
27/07/2018 - 07:00

so when efficiency is 100% it is 19 minutes

Excelchat Expert
27/07/2018 - 07:00

try it now by changing the efficieny

User
27/07/2018 - 07:01

that works :) thank you

Excelchat Expert
27/07/2018 - 07:01
