I need to calculate the index time of the following:

Max Velocity = 2700mm/s

Accel = 4000mm/s/s

Decel = 4000mm/s/s

Index Distance = x

What Equations do I need to utilize in order to calculate the total index time for a specified distance?

I assume by index time you mean to write an equation for distance which is a function of t using the velocity and accelerations provided. You haven't provided a context like is this on the earth with a ball thrown into the air or a ball rolling down a ramp...

to find time t as a function of distance x,

if that is what you are after.
