The Machine Utilization report is similar to the Staff Utilization report but with one main difference. While staff members have scheduled working hours within the Business Hours, the machine's available times are the same as the Business opening hours.
For example, if a Business is open 8 hours a day from Monday to Friday, the machine's available time is 40 hours per week.
The time a machine is being used depends on how long the Appointments (which are assigned to the machine) are scheduled for.
The Machine Utilization percentage is calculated by using the time a machine is being used in appointments in the given period of time, divided by the total Business Opening hours in the same period.
If the machine is booked in for 10 hours of appointments in a 40-hour week, then the Machine Utilization is 10/40 x 100 = 25%.
