How to create a percentage capacity chart

Hi All


I m new to power bi so need your assistance in helping me create this chart.  I want to calculate the instrument utilization for my instruments. Instrument A has a throughput of 1000 tests/hour and Instrument B has throughput of 200 tests/ hour 


Instrument A can run only "CC" TESTS and Instrument B can run "IA" tests.


So i have a column in my data that is receive hour. I want to calculate the number of tests received in an hour.


And catergorize by test type so if the test type is "CC" then group it in instrument A

and if "IA" then Instrument B 


Also i want to have the flexibilty to choose the number of instrument needed i.e if i select 2 in my slicer for instrument A it shoudl take the throughput as 2000 not 1000 tests/hour.


The formula that i need to calculate the percent capcity is (Total number of tests received in that particular hour)/ Throughput of Instrument * Number of instrument selected)*100.


I have attached the example in excel was i want to createCapacity chart example.pngCustomer data.png

From your description, I could not understand the sentence "So i have a column in my data that is receive hour. I want to calculate the number of tests received in an hour". I could not find any data about the column [receive hour], if the receive hour should be calculated, could you please tell me the logic about how to calculate your data?
