  1. Identify the true, exact sources of lost production and the effect on profits.
  2. Identify the best person to solve a process or machine issue and which staff members contribute most to causing the issue.
  3. Identify what training would result in increased productivity and what best practices can be shared in order to maximize productivity and ultimately profits.
  4. Two new major features help to measure Machine Lost Production (prolonged instances of lost production) and Processor Lost Production (short instances of lost production).


  • Identify prolonged instances of lost production that require maintenance technicians to perform machinery repairs in order to resume production.
  • Identify repetitive machine issues for continuous improvements during scheduled preventative maintenance times and assigned to the most qualified maintenance staff member.
  • Measure maintenance personnel response times, response instances, repair times and repair effectiveness.


  • Identify short instances of lost production that do not require a maintenance technician and are resolved by the operator or line supervisor.
  • Identify lost production instances using sub-category by duration – Micro Stoppage, Slow Cycle, Small Stop.
  • Measurement of operator load time, operator load accuracy, and the number of lost production instances generated by the operator.
  • Lost production time is allocated to the operator on duty, allowing for a transparent assessment of performance.
  • Identification of production staff that require training along with top performing production staff identified for advancement and best practice sharing.
