ROI Robot System Value Calculator

Special thanks to Ron Potter of Factory Automation Systems for his assistance in developing this tool and its calculations.

This calculator shows the potentially dramatic impact in cost savings of leveraging a robot versus manual labor over the lifetime of a project.

The pre-filled sections of the tool below, display an example study where 2 robots were installed and operating for 2 shifts each day, 5 days a week. The costs & savings associated with the example were examined over the course of a 15 year period.

These are displayed solely as an example and are not meant to be a model for an average user installation cost or savings return.

Variable for Total System Cost

Variables for Current Operational Costs

Robot System Usage:Disclaimer: Average Robot Electrical costs are roughly $.50 per hour
Annual Labor Costs per Operator,Including Fringe Benefits:Disclaimer: Average Robot Electrical costs are roughly $.50 per hour
Number of Operators per Shift Removed:
Percentage of Labor Retained to Operate System per Shift: %
Expected Productivity Gain: %
Other Estimated Savings:Additional Statement: We have found that there are often a number of additional unforeseen or industry specific values associated with the installation of Robotic Systems, such as: Scrap/Rework Saving, Material Savings, etc.
