I think you are quite wrong here.

I have worked with optical engineers who needed to calculate grating numbers
for their lenses. If they can have a calculation program that runs in 1
minute instead of 2 they can effectively double their output during the day
(since they run calculations hundreds to thousand times a day to get the
most optimal results with minor tweaks).

I think you are being a bit too easy on hand waving here that mere minute
runtimes are not noticeable.
