Inside Our Idle Time Analysis
The great thing about machines is they don’t need 10-minute smoke breaks or to check their Facebook at work. They care about one thing: being a machine. So when there is excessive idle (or stoppage) time, the machine is not doing the one thing they truly love.
This is where our Idle Time Analysis (or Stoppage Analysis) Excel Template comes in handy. This template helps you identify, evaluate and reduce unproductive time for machines as well as employees.
The result of this analysis? Significant improvements in manufacturing efficiency and an improved bottom line.
Before we dive into how to use this template, check out our Statistical Process Control, Quality Function Deployment, Manufacturing KPI Management and Failure Mode and Effects Analysis Excel Templates.
Start in the Database sheet and enter product details like Product Name, Workers Required and Workers Hourly Cost. In that same sheet, record Related Departments, Common Root Causes and Operating Line details.
Navigate to the Idle Time Analysis sheet and record all idle time details in the log. Fill out the Date, Line, Product, Stop Time, Start Time, Cause Department, Root Cause and Countermeasure (color-coded by Open, In-Progress and Closed) fields which have white backgrounds. The cells with grey backgrounds, Lose Time, Operation Idle Cost, Workers Idle Cost and Total Idle Cost will auto populate based on your inputs.
Above the table is a Dashboard that displays graphs, charts and KPIs that track Idle Hours Analysis, Lose Cost Analysis, Total Stop Times, Total Lose Hours, Operation Idle Cost and Workers Idle Cost.
You can easily sort and filter the data by Date, Cause Department, Line and Product.
As with all our templates, the goal is to provide better data and present it through visuals that are easily digestible. With this template, you can get back to empowering your machine to be the best machine it can be.
