## Max value in a counting measure

I have two tables, an agenda and a production,
I have two tb measurements, one that calculates the machine's production in the month and the other that calculates the days worked.
I would like to calculate the daily production of the machine by the largest number of days worked each month.

Something similar:

Divide (Production, Days) * Max (Days)

It would be basically the highest value of days worked, that is, a MAX (Count).
In my example in the figure would be:

Return DIVIDE(Production, Days) * 26

Is this possible?

Hi, @Anonymous

Based on your description, I created data to reproduce your scenario. The pbix file is attached in the end.

Table:

You may create two measures as below.

``Count of Days = COUNTROWS('Table')``

``````Result =
var maxdays =
MAXX(
SUMMARIZE(
ALL('Table'),
'Table'[Month],
'Table'[Machine],
"Count of Days",
COUNTROWS('Table')
),
[Count of Days]
)
var newtab =
SUMMARIZE(
'Table',
'Table'[Month],
'Table'[Machine],
"Count",
COUNTROWS('Table'),
"TotalProduction",
SUM('Table'[Production])
),
"Result",
DIVIDE(
[TotalProduction],
[Count]
)*maxdays
)
return
SUMX(
newtab,
[Result]
)``````

Result:

I bet it could be done if you created a SUMMARIXE DAX table that summarized by Month and machine (or is it only by month?) and get the Count of days Worked as a Column instead of a Measure. Once that is a Column, you can do a MAX( ) function on it.

But I just have to ask this, WHY? Why would you want to calculate a RATE of Production Per Day when you have PARTIAL Months' worth of Production but divide it by the MAX number of days? In the bottom row of your sample, it would be 31.50 / 26.

The reason for needing that metric just doesn't make sense to me. The comparison to any other calculation result is not relevent.

In fact, what I'm trying to do with this measure is to calculate a correction factor for the monthly average.

See well:

I have11 machines working in February and 5619.20 produced, if I just average the month I will get 510.83 (5619.20 / 11) per machine.

This value is underestimated for the month's average, given that not all machines worked every day, but by doing the projected calculation I can have an average production per machine closer to the real one.
