This feature requires Downtime enabled on your machine.

Downtime enables users to identify downtime root causes in order to maximize machine productivity.

1. Select a schedule

For more information on creating machine schedules, see New Schedule Creation.

To edit an existing schedule, select the desired schedule from the list displayed, and select the   icon.

2. Create “No Production” Shifts

For the desired time periods, create a Non-Production shift and assign it to the necessary time periods. To set no production shift, check the box at the end of the PO column.

Use shift templates to find a pre-made shift schedule to fit your needs. A temp – 2/8/5 or 3/8/5 schedule has built-in shifts for weekends pre-designated as non-production (No Prod) shifts.
