    As long as you know how long 1 item takes to make and you are given the total time available you will be able to work it out. Divide the total time by the time for one so, using your example - 120/0.04 = 3000 units could be made.

    I find it easier working it out in 2 sections;

    1/.04 = 25 (25 can be made in an hour)

    25 x 120hours = 3000
