French translation:productivité des processus métier
Explanation:
Bon - je ne sais pas s'il y a déjà une traduction française officielle pour ce terme mais voici une petite phrase française trouvée sur le web qui semble correspondre à la définition ci-après, également trouvée sur le web (cf. référence indiquée)


Craft Productivity, quite often referred to as Wrench Time, is an extremely important metric with regard to maintenance performance. Wrench time is often overlooked and poor craft productivity is just accepted as part of the business. It is important to understand what wrench time really is. First, it is not a measure of the work ethic of the maintenance work force. Second (and most important), it is not a measure of how busy a craftsperson is. Often maintenance craft are working very hard and are extremely busy, yet they are not being productive.
By definition, wrench time is a measure of craft productivity. Simply put, wrench time is a measure of the time that a craftsperson actually spends ‘on the wrenches’.
