MT Productivity Report Explained
For an explanation on what the parameters for the MT Productivity Report mean, see KB496. Transcription LPH is a computed value based on historical data. For details on how the Transcription LPH (TX lines/hour) are computed, see KB735.
The MT Productivity Report is a powerful tool for analyzing the effects of enabling First Draft on your work force.
One of the key tools this report provides is the ability to compare an MTs production before and after enabling First Draft. You can inspect a specific MT based on a certain Author and Document type, or you can see the overall picture. Monitoring an MTs production rates can be important for determining how well he/she is adopting First Draft, and can be a gauge for how the MT is likely to feel about making the switch.
For example, in the above snippet of the report, we can see that while Russ and Roger have adapted well to John Seger moving to FD, Louise has not adjusted well. While Russ and Roger are probably very happy with the move and may be making more money, Louise is almost certainly frustrated. After looking at this report, an admin could take some proactive steps to mitigate this looming problem if Louise has not spoken up yet.
The MT Productivity Report can also be good for analyzing production on a certain Author after moving him or her to First Draft. For instance, if editors are seeing good increased productivity on some Authors, but are seeing only marginal increases on others, then it may be a good idea to review the templates and touch base with some of the MTs that are editing for that Author – it may be that a few settings are a little off, or it could be that this Author simply is not a good candidate for First Draft. In the below example, for instance, it would certainly be worth investigating why the production numbers for “image, image” have dropped after enabling First Draft. Be careful, however, since it could have more to do with an individual MT than with the Author’s settings/template. We know from the above screen shot that it’s actually Louise that is bringing down the average for this Author.
This report can also be run based on MT, rather than by Author as shown above:
