"Track Downtime" is a feature offered by FMX that allows for Users to be able to track how long and how frequent a piece of equipment is down (or not working/functioning properly). This helps industries better gauge which assets of their company are no longer an asset, but rather a liability. Follow the steps below to better understand how you can use the Track Downtime feature on your FMX site!
Before you can "Track Downtime", you must first make sure that you have enabled Downtime on your FMX site. This can be done by navigating to the General Settings using the Admin Settings on the left side of your site:
Scroll down to Equipment Settings and check the box that says Track Downtime:
1. Turn on Track Downtime for your desired Equipment Types using the Admin Settings Module:
MTBF (Mean Time Between Failures)
MTBF (Mean Time Between Failures) is the predicted elapsed time between equipment failures within your organization during normal system operations. It is calculated by finding the average time between failures of a particular piece of equipment (see image), and will provide you with an estimated projection of when that piece of equipment will go down again. The higher the MTBF, the longer a piece of equipment/system is likely to work before failing again.
