We have a palletized assy line with 13 Stations on it. Only 3 of the stations require operators. If one of the stations goes down they (production dept) count it as line downtime. In reality it is only 1 out of 13 stations that has stopped the others have not quit working. Most often it takes less than 2-3 minutes to get it back running and only one operator has to get up to fix the problem. Is there a formula for calculating the downtime if only one station has stopped?
