Schwer und Kopka GmbH - effiziente Prozess- und  Werkzeugüberwachung Ihrer Produktionsmaschinen

The degree of utilization of a machine reflects the ratio of the target production time according to the specification from the shift calendar and the actual production time recorded in real terms as a percentage. Therefore, the formula for this is 

degree of utilization [%]=actual production time/target production time.

Therefore, a poor degree of utilization inevitably results from frequent machine downtimes, e.g. due to technical or organisational faults.
