German term or phrase: Arbeitssystempause / Arbeitspause
In a car engine assembly, total production efficiency is being calculated. Verteilzeit is unproductive time, what are the two terms above? They mean the same to me but there are separate hourly entries for them...

Production line stops, workers stops
Explanation:
I understand the following :

The first one refers to the stops due to the production system (ie, here, production line for automobile industry).

The second refers to the normal stops that occur during people's working time. (eating, etc...).

Hi 'tol! Do "temporizing" and "full stop" fit your context?


Explanation:
The first is when the system is powered but idling, the second is really OFF.


    To tell you the truth, I know this better in Spanish.

5 hrs
operational system pause/ operational pause


Explanation:
probably not the right words, but to my understanding, it means that, in some instances, for some reasons (eg. maintainance, repairs, strikes)the whole operational system has to be stopped for a certain period. (the damage is clear-cut)

While, in other instances only a certain part of the production line will have to be stopped, for the same or similar reasons.(the damage has to be estimated.)

It's still only a guess, but maybe the figues prove my theory somehow.

13 hrs peer agreement (net): +1
1) standstill, stopp, stoppage 2) pause, break


Explanation:
1) refers to production line, machine, system, etc.
Another translation is down-time (for defect machines)
2) means either 1) or pause/break time of workers

IMO: unproductive time in both cases
