Machine Hours Capacity

I was wondering what the industry standard is for machine hours
capacity. I
have been using 400 hours per month to gage ours. What I take into
consideration is the amount of down time due to service calls, software
upgrades, etc. So at 400 hour I view each of my machines as at 100%
available capacity.

Do any of you fine folks out there have a feel for how many hours a
your machine needs to run to be considered "At Capacity"?
