Machine availability is among the three primary factors to determine the overall effectiveness of equipment. Machine availability considers all events that might have disrupted the planned production period in case it stops for a short while.
Machine availability is presented as a percentage and determined by analyzing all equipment during the company’s uptime. This brings about the definition of machine availability as the time taken for machines to do their work divided by the available time during downtime for repair or inevitable maintenance.
Highlighting actual machine availability requires focusing on all possibilities of downtime whether planned or unplanned.
