operator utilization

operator utilization

[′äp·ə‚rād·ər ‚yüd·əl·ə′zā·shən]
(industrial engineering)
The ratio of working time to total clock time; a ratio of 1.00 (or 100) indicates full utilization of the operator's work time.

"Operator utilization without telematics is a lot about perception.
Operator utilization is useful data, coming directly from the lift truck and the process.
* Straight forward operator utilization with exceptionally little leaking or dripping
Operator state includes operator utilization ratio, operator skill level, and operator performance.
The relation of operator utilization ratio and operator performance obeys the Yerkes-Dodson law [20], which is shown in Figure 1.
If the initial operator utilization ratio is [x.sub.0] [member of] [[x.sub.min], [x.sub.max]], the work time is t and the rest time after the task is r.
The evolution of operator utilization ratio with work time and rest time is shown in Figure 2.
where [mathematical expression not reproducible] are the bounds of operator utilization ratio, and t, r are N-vectors of [t.sub.j], [r.sub.j], which represent work time and rest time, respectively.
This is reflected in a reduction in the number of conveyor stops, a reduction in the instances the operator moves outside of the spray booth, and a reduction in the operator utilization. Opportunities to improve upon these results will be explored further.
Scenario 4 results show a reduction in operator utilization and that the operator never exceeded the workstation limits.
Operator utilization (or load) can be estimated under operating dynamics of the JIT production system.
In addition the firm uses a machining cell concept to perform as many operations as possible at one location for maximum operator utilization and control.
