Our  Downtime report is the favourite among all our users and for one big reason: total transparency. At a glance, the Downtime report shows clearly why your machines are not working, as well as the top downtime reasons for the whole factory. Once you drill down into the Downtime report, you're able to see every single stop reason registered by Evocon, along with all the necessary details. The report gives all the information you need to clearly understand your availability.

Availability is the proportion of planned running time which is actually available for production. The losses related to availability include unplanned and planned stops.

Tip: If you are just getting started with tracking and analysing your production downtime, then we recommend reading our articles – How to start with machine downtime analysis? and Why machine downtime tracking matters?

What does the Downtime chart show?

The Downtime chart visualises your top 20 production downtime reasons, whereas the colour of each breakdown depends on the stop group it belongs to.

Using different colours to differentiate groups gives your team the possibility to immediately understand what issues contribute most to losses in availability. The numbers on top of the bars give an overview of how many times during the selected time period these stops have occurred.

Note: Chart display feature is disabled in the downtime report.

What production data is displayed in the data table?

Everything you see on the chart is also shown in the data table, and some more. The table gives an overview of all downtime reasons during the selected time period, including the stop group they belong to and their type.

The exact number of occurrences can be found under the count column, while the notes count column shows how many notes there are from operators for this stop reason. Finally, the duration column shows you the total time lost due to every sop reasons and the stop % shows the proportion of each stop reason to total downtime.

How to analyse single stop reasons?

By using the drill-down feature you can narrow down your analysis to single stops where the dynamics of the stop reason are visualised in more detail.

The chart shows how the stop reason has changed in time and displays the number of occurrences for each day with the total time lost shown on the y-axis. While the data table shows you the specifics of each occurrence – the operator who registered the stop, the duration, date and also if any notes were added.

TIP: toggle production stops off on the chart

When analysing downtime it is common that the duration of some stop reasons (e.g. uncommented stops) is much longer than others and visual comparability is diminished. In order to compare and analyse stop reasons more effectively, you can toggle production stops on and off on the chart by clicking on the chart icon in the data table.
