Manufacturing / production
English term or phrase: outage and lost production
problems with motors/gearboxes resulting in substantial outage and lost production... I found "Nichtverfügbarkeit" for outage - sounds a bit strange to me! lost production = fehlerhafte Produktion/Ausschuss?

German translation:Nichtverfügbarkeit and Produktionsausfall
Explanation:
Ausschuss is scrap, poorly produced parts

lost production goes hand in hand with outage. If the machine is capable of making 1000 widgets an hour and is out for 1 hour, then we have a production shortage (or lost production) of 1000 widgets, i.e., the ones that did NOT get produced because of the outage.
