There is no set formula. You need to customize this number around your operation.

Depending on how you account for: Capital Equipment Costs Utilities Building Costs Overhead services Consumables ( Flux, Paste, Glue, ...... )

Once you get the costs for all of the "Extra's" you will be ready to go to the next step... Determining how fast you can perform the different operations.

After you de-rate your speed to accomodate for clean-up, tear-down, breaks, overall laziness.... you should be able to come up with a formula that fits your operational model.
