what grants are available for non profit organizations Advertisement Loading may be the work which is invested in a work centre. For example, time might be lost while changing over from making one component to another. If your machine breaks down, it won't be available. If there is machine reliability data available, this should also be considered. Sometimes the equipment might be awaiting parts to arrive or be 'idling' for many other reason. Other losses could have an allowance for the machine being run below its optimum speed plus an allowance to the 'quality losses' or defects which your machine may produce. Of course, several losses should be small or non-existent in the well-managed operation. Finite loading is an approach which only allocates work to a work up to set limit. This limit is the estimate of capacity for that work centre (in line with the times designed for loading). Infinite loading can be an way of loading work which doesn't limit accepting work, but instead tries to handle it.
