This series includes 24 Key Numbers. If you work on getting all of them in the ranges mentioned, your shop should be solidly profitable.
Key Numbers 101 Series – Key # 19 – Average Hours per Tech per Week
For key number 19 we want to know the average number of hours that are produced per technician each week.
Last month Acme Auto’s 2 techs 275 produced hours.
The shop is open 5 days per week and was open 21 days last month.
21 ÷ 5 = 4.2 weeks worked.
275 hours ÷ 4.2 weeks = 65.4 hours per week.
65.4 hours ÷ 2 techs = 32.7 hours.
So, key number 19 is 32.7 hours per tech per week.
When looking at this number for a typical independent shop which is solidly profitable, this number will normally run between 33 and 40 hours.
There is a fill in the blank form where you can automatically calculate this number for your shop in our Business Calculators area available to Premium Members.
This is a great learning and working tool for anyone in your shop who should know what the key numbers need to be.
