New Feature

Feature 1: Track cost and duration of production downtime

Impact area: Production module

Introduction: Production downtime report measures the duration and cost of downtime for a production resource, operation, and work center. Both planned and unplanned downtime are measured, and cost is calculated based on the cost per unit of time and total downtime.

Downtime is tracked from the start of an operation until the operation is completed. Downtime sums all of the snippets when operation was suspended during operational hours. Downtime considers only working hours.

Cost of planned and unplanned downtime can now be specified for a production resource.


  • Set up resource production and downtime costs
  • Set up suspend reasons


  • Access report by going to Reports → Production → Production Downtime Report
