In manufacturing environments, indirect activities refer to tasks that are not directly related to a specific job or project but are still necessary to keep the production process running smoothly. These activities can include things like maintenance, setup, cleaning, and quality checks, as well as other tasks like meetings and lunch breaks. Workers are able to track the time they spend on these indirect activities using the same system they use to log time on production jobs and projects.
