Nonproductive capacity is that amount of production capacity that is temporarily not usable. The amount of resulting downtime can have a number of causes, such as:

  • The time required to set up a new production run

  • The time required for scheduled maintenance

  • The time required for unscheduled maintenance

  • The time lost due to the production of units that had to be scrapped or reworked
