English term or phrase: up time
After as little as six months, you will see the big payoff of PMC2000 when you have accumulated comprehensive records of work orders, purchase orders, maintenance activities, and costs through the everyday use of the system. You can use the powerful Reports and Graphs function to create useful information out of this raw data. By using these functions, you begin to have a real understanding of where your maintenance dollars are going, and you can begin to clearly formulate plans on how to increase your UP TIME.

I'm not sure that "time" as "tiempo" would be appropriate in this translation; therefore, I have employed "produccion" to signify a positive activity or "time" for the system.

As opposed to "time down", it's the time when the system is operating effectively.
