Occupancy rates calculation


Our customer would like to calculate the occupancy rates of robots/machines using RoboDK.
As far as I know, RoboDK does not have such a feature but does anyone has the idea to realize it?

As the attachment explains, they have multiple machines that they want to calculate the running time.

Since RoboDK can work with Python scripts, you can program your process model on Python and integrate it into the RoboDK simulation process. 
You can get an estimated cycle time for a Program using the API with program.Update():

You can also determine if a robot is being use with robot.Busy():

From there, you can monitor your station through the API and find the occupancy rates.
