We have 'job's set up for specific activities such as
'waiting for raw material', meetings, 'waiting for tool
repair' etc.  You can create a 'job' for a specific
machine (work center) to be used when it's down.
We have a report that analyses employees variance
time, if they're not on a job......enquiring minds want to
know why!
I wonder if MAINCOR addresses it?  Since there
is a web client that can be used in the shop, the
machinist could enter the data.  Good question,
especially since we have MAINCOR!

        Subject:        Recording Machine Down Time
Has anyone found a creative way to record the period of time that a machine
is not available?
The operator is moved to another job, so he can not record time against it.
The Maintenance person might not get to it for days - if waiting for parts,
so the amount of time they spend "on the repair" is not relevant.  We can't
record indirect hours that would be added to the overhead.
