Downtime calculator

An active preventive maintenance program is crucial to improving safety and productivity. Preventive maintenance can reduce downtime and increase reliability. If one of your cranes goes down, how much is it really costing you?

Downtime is the total time interval between when a crane goes down to when it is fully operational again. This period includes time for set-up, repair and travel. It also includes any rework time necessary after initial repairs have been completed. If you don't know a value for any field, enter '0' or leave the field blank.
