Calculated estimated loading time


New Member
Hi there,

This is my first post. I'll do my best to explain my problem.
Im kinda new to excel but cant seem to find the answer.

I want to calculate the estimated loading time at a specific area.

I explained the calculation in the attached excel file. Most likely is an easy sollution but i'm breaking my neck over it.

Thanks for any help in advance.

Hi there,

Thanks for the quick response.

Why only 21?
its for all the area's, but if i know how to calculate it for 21 , i can make the same calculation for the others.

What adds up 21630?
(the total amount of area 21 at 6.00 - total amount of area 21 at 7.00) x 7 (picking hours))
Blad1:!C12 = Blad1!C5 - Blad1!C6 ((3070))
Blad1!N12 = Blad1:!C12 * 7 ((21630)

contains the area of an order
0600'!F:F contains the loading times of an order
0600'!K:K contains the open total quantity of an order

The formula will be something like:
blad1!C20 = what is the Loading time (0600'!F:F) when the total of open quantity (0600'!K:K) equals 21630 in area 21 (0600'!E:E)

The idea is to predict the loading time at the end of the shift. (1400 hrs).
In all area's the loading time must be at least 1600 hours. With a prediction we can move employees from one area to another, so we are sure the loading times be met.
