RoH - Nanoforges and Manufactories: time to produce

Recommended Posts



I'm creating a new thread in order to not jeopardize the previous one with multiple questions.

Let me know if I'm not following the forums rules and accept my apologies in advance.


So I have a question about time to produce formula page 71

(hum, you can noticed I’m not able to progress very fast in my reading :( ):

Time to produce = Object SIZ x TL / Manufactory output/hr


First, I’m  finding strange that the more the technology level is high, the more it will take time to produce.

I would have expected the exact opposite. :)


Mor over, if you consider also the Max production output/hr formula:

Max production output/hr = Manufactory SIZ x Tech Level


Then the minimum time to produce is independent from the tech level:


Time to produce = Object SIZ x TL / Manufactory SIZ x Tech Level = Object SIZ / Manufactory SIZ


So basically, there was no productivity gain thanks to technology advances? :)

Usually, the product cost reduction is performed by reducing the BOM, but also the reducing the time spent on the production and assembly lines, isn’t it?


So did I miss something or is there a typo, and the right formula is indeed:


Time to produce = Object SIZ / TL x Manufactory output/hr


Thanks for your comments!

No its not a typo. You are taking TL to mean the TL of then Nanoforge, which its not. Its the Tech Level of the object being produced, so the more complex the item the higher its TL.
