Diversions are used extensively in LYNQ and used to properly calculate key performance indicators such as:
 
  • Availability
  • Performance
  • Overall Employee Effectiveness (OLE)
  • Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE)
  • Total Effective Equipment Performance (TEEP)
When creating new custom diversions you should carefully consider how you want to configure the diversion type and the operational type fields.

Diversion Type:
 
  • Direct
  • Indirect
  • Non-operational
Direct defines activity which is engaged directly in the manufacture of a product.  Indirect defines activty which is not engaged directly in the manufacture of a product.  Non-operational defines activity which is neither direct or indirect.
 
Operational Type:
 
  • Uptime
  • Downtime
  • Non-operational time
Uptime defines that the resource is engaged in activity which is directly related to the manufacture of a product.  Downtime defines that the resource is engaged in activity which is not directly related to the manufacture of a product.  Non-operational time defines a resource is engaged in neither uptime or downtime.
 
You will notice that a range of reports and dashboards can be analysed by diversion.
