Loading Rate: ‘Scheduled’ versus ‘not scheduled’
Please note: ‘Scheduled Time’ or ‘Potential Production Time’ is also referred to as ‘Loading Time’
So first we determine: How much of the total time was the machine scheduled to run?
This is the Loading Rate:
Loading rate = Scheduled Time / Calendar Time
Please note: Breaks and other waiting is INCLUDED in the loading-time:
It is part of the operation; theoretically the machine could run!
Once the machine is scheduled, it will usually be operated in a certain shift regime. However sometimes it will be unscheduled again. Regular shift time can be unscheduled for several reasons; ie there is no demand, R&D needs to runs some tests etc. Those reasons are beyond the scope of the production-team.
Please do not confuse un-scheduled with not-scheduled or unplanned!
