How to deal with short (‘Minor’) stoppages

A minimum duration will be defined to identify an interruption of the production process as an actual stop. Usually this is between 1 and 5 minutes. This interval is short enough to gain insight in the time loss and long enough to prevent registration stress. Time-fragments shorter than this threshold are not registered and fall in the performance-category “minor stoppages”, influencing the performance rate. (see alsoII  7.1 What is the Maximum Speed of the Machine?)

Warning: taking too many short stoppages into the availability analysis may drastically clutter your graphs and reports without giving focus for improvement. Moving them into a performance loss as minor stops can prevent this.
