espace grignoté par les panneaux de séparation
Explanation:
1 panneau de séparation de 5 cm d'épaisseur x 20 postes de travail = 1 mètre d'espace de bureau perdu (= panel creep).

"Panel creep may sound like an offensive term used to describe an annoying coworker, but the appropriate definition is unused space that accrues along a run of workstations multiplied by the total effect on the call center floor. As shown below, a run of eight workstations that are 3’x5’ in dimension, constructed with 2” panels separating the workstations adds 5” of unused space that is being consumed by the panels for each run of workstations."
