Ever wonder how much the machines are being utilized at the CRC? Each month we will provide updated data reports on each machine. This information is helpful to report because it gives an idea of how popular some machines are and it tells us how much a piece is being utilized.
Throughout the year we will move/switch machines based on popular use and location of the specified machine to ensure that all the equipment is utilized equally. This also helps us to gather data for future machine replacement and maintenance on a continual basis.
