Calculatation within same column according to different attributes



I need the help of some DAX gurus. 

Currently I am encountering the following problem. We want to calculate the leadtime in production. So we have the different leadtimes( Wait LT, Storage LT, etc.) in one column as attributes, and in the other the according values. It shall be displayed in a waterfall visual. 

The same attribute column holds, the attribute "number of batches". So after a set of leadtime attributes I get one value with the number of batches for my plant and my brand per month. 

Now I tried to for example calculate the average as follows;

AverageLT =
        DIVIDE (
            CALCULATE (
                AVERAGE ( 'Table 1'[Value] );
                'Table 1'[Att] <> "number of batches"
            CALCULATE ( AVERAGE ( 'Table 1'[Value] ); 'Table 1'[Att] = "number of batches" )

However it always returns 0. If I do the same with the average of a column in which I also calculate the number of batches, I get numbers. However the data there is not really consistent, i.e. brands missing etc.. So i want to stick to the current table. 

Did anyone experience similar problems or has an idea why it is not working?
