Some charts such as the Remote Monitoring Productivity chart include the acronyms MO and PO.


MO stands for Machine Operating Time, which represents the total operation time of the machine. This duration is calculated based on the number of minutes of collected machine production time.

PO stands for Plant Operating Time, which is measured by the machine’s configured shift schedule. If a machine has a shift schedule of 3 8-hour shifts per day, the PO of the day should be 24. (PO of each shift would remain at 8).

Additionally, PO also relies on any downtime code defined as a Scheduled downtime type. Reasons for scheduled downtime include shutdowns, holidays, and other times. This type of scheduled downtime is assigned to a machine through the Downtime Tracking application. Read more about downtime types here.
