Maintenance Wrench Time is the primary measure of planning and scheduling effectiveness of plant management. It is measured in terms of time spent by maintenance technicians at work in front of jobs. This does not include time spent obtaining parts and work assignments, travel associated with work and break time. 


Maintenance Wrench Time is used as a metric to assess a plant's productivity. A typical maintenance wrench time ranges between a meagre 25% to 35%. The remaining 65% of workers' time is spent on administrative tasks preparing the actual job to be done.
