We're calculating capacity as 20 hrs/day, every working day of the month. This
permits "downtime" for maintenance and off-hour build completion while permitting
"make-up" hours on weekends. However, we're averaging nearly 550 hours/month build
time on the SLA500 as we load the machine in such a manner to run throughout nights
and weekends (if possible).

With our 135% uptime rating, we justified a second SLA.
