Waiting time

Updated: Aug 20, 2021

In business parlance, time which an employee spends idle, though not through his own fault, e.g. time spent waiting for a machine to be repaired or set up ready for use. It is obviously worthwhile to minimize this time. In some services, for example taxi driving, a charge may be made for waiting time.
