**Task Time Percentage**: 25% (0.25) of the work week is spent on repetitive tasks.

If **25%** of the work week is spent on repetitive tasks, that leaves **75%** of the time for other productive work.

By automating these repetitive tasks, the entire workweek becomes effectively productive. The maths is simple: previously, only **75%** of the time was productive. After automation, **100%** of the time is productive. So, the productivity increase is calculated from 75% to 100%, which is about a **33%** increase in productivity.

Or as we’ve shown in the calculator, this is a **1.33x** increase in productivity.

**Task Time Percentage**: 25% (0.25) of the work week is spent on repetitive tasks.**Speed Factor**: Let’s assume an automation performs a task 5 times faster than human work (in reality, it will be a lot higher than this)

**Automation’s Effective Work Hours**:- Automation capacity: 7 days per week (168 hours).
- However, it works at 5x the speed of a human.
- Therefore, the effective human work equivalent$168×5=840$ human work hours per week.

**Adjusted Automation Hours**:- The automation replaces 25% of the human workweek, which is 10 hours.
- But since it works 5 times faster, it does 10×5=50 hours of human work in that time.
- Adjusted automation hours: 840×0.25=210 hours.

**Remaining Human Productive Hours**:- Human hours not spent on repetitive tasks: 40−(40×0.25)=30 hours.

**Total Productive Hours (With Automation)**:- Total = 210 (automation) + 30 (human) = 240 hours.

**Original Productive Hours**: 40 hours (standard workweek).**Productivity Increase Calculation:**

We calculate a 6x increase in productivity because we consider that automation can effectively multiply the human work hours it replaces by both its speed factor and its continuous operation. In this case, it’s not just replacing the 10 hours spent on repetitive tasks; it’s effectively adding much more due to its higher speed and continuous operation.

This calculation assumes that the increased capacity of automation (working 24/7 at a higher speed) is fully utilised and directly translates to increased productivity. In real-world scenarios, the actual increase in productivity might be lower due to factors like the limits of how much additional work is useful or can be managed effectively.
