I think that you will need to sum the times reported for each operation to arrive at the total. Below is a link to some code on the GTAC solution center that shows how to iterate through the operations and get the time values.

Re: Problem with getting 'Time parameter' of a tool/operation

The times (cuuting and non-cutting) are stored as operation parameters.

Like @cowski1 says, if you want them for a group, as seen inthe Operation Navigator, you need to add them up in your program.
