The report will now run, here is an example:
The Machine Utilisation is similar to the Staff Utilisation report but with one main important difference. While staff members have scheduled working hours within the Business Hours, the Machines available time is the same as the Business opening hours.
For example, if a Business is open for 8 hours a day from Monday to Friday, the Machines available time is 40 hours per week. The time a Machine is being used depends on how long the appointments (with the Machine allocated) are scheduled for.
The Machine Utilisation is calculated by using the time a Machine is being used (in scheduled appointments), in the given period of time, divided by the total Business Opening hours in the same period.
For example: if the a Machine is booked in for 10 hours of appointments in a 40 hour week, the Machine Utilisation is 10/40=25%.
