Running time (technology)

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The runtime is a technical specification that indicates the time that has passed since the activation of a system or a plant .

The information can be specified more precisely:

  • the time that has elapsed since the first activation; is also referred to as the total term
  • the time that elapses between two defined points in time (e.g. from the start to the end of playback of a CD or a music track on it)
  • the time that has elapsed since the last standstill; see uptime (or "clear duration"), opposite: downtime ("unclear duration")
  • a statistically determined time that describes the service life of the system

The specification of the running times of a plant or system is of particular interest for its maintenance and is an indicator of the quality feature “reliability” of a unit.
