Size - the size of the subdivision, determining its maximum production capacity. It is indicated in basic units - blocks (the corresponding number of work places is indicated in brackets).



Technology - the name of the technology (type of production) currently being researched.

Research level - the level of technology studied.

Research status - current stage of the research and its progress. For more details see the section Progress.


Laboratory efficiency

Efficiency of the Office - the efficiency of the managing office of the region, where the subdivision is located.

Efficiency of the staff - is determined by the correspondence of the qualification level of the staff to the required value. Requirements for the level of qualification of personnel are determined by the quality of the installed equipment. An increase in the qualifications of personnel above the required level does not affect the performance of the enterprise, but increases the burden on the manager, as a result of which his efficiency may decrease. To maintain the optimal ratio, you can use the Human Resources Department service, which automatically sets the required value for personnel qualifications through wage adjustments.

Efficiency of Equipment - is determined by the correspondence of the quality of the installed equipment to the required value, and wear and tear. Requirements for the quality of equipment are determined by the level of technology installed in subdivision. An increase in the quality of equipment above the required level does not affect the performance of the enterprise, but imposes increased requirements on personnel.

The efficiency of a Top Manager - the efficiency of management of Top-manager. Depends on the correspondence of the Top-managers skill “Science research” to the qualifications of the staff in all similar (using this skill) subdivision of the company as a whole.

Production efficiency (at the time of recounting) is the main indicator of how well the research process is organized in the laboratory. One hundred percent efficiency indicates the optimal level of correlation between the size of the subdivision, the quantity and quality of equipment, the number and qualifications of personnel, the qualifications and loading and the efficiency of the director of the enterprise and the level of research. Low efficiency leads to a decrease in research speed.

Final efficiency depends on four indicators:

  • Office efficiency
  • Staff efficiency;
  • Equipment efficiency;
  • Top Мanagers " Science research" skill level


Laboratory staff

Quantity - the current number of employees in the subdivision.

Staff qualification - the current qualification level of employees (in addition, the city average qualification value and the required value determined by the quality of equipment are indicated in brackets). Excessive qualification level of employees does not lead to improvement of production parameters and at the same time increases requirements for the level of “Science research” skill of Top-manager. Qualification indicator can be raised by training staff, or by a change in salary (the effect of a change in salary is visible immediately, you do not need to wait for next turn).

Salary of one employee - weekly salary of one employee. The average salary of employees of this type of units in the city is indicated in brackets (each type has its own coefficient).


LAboratory equipment

Quantity - the amount of equipment installed. Along with the number of workers determines the load of the enterprise and its current production potential in terms of output.

Quality - the current quality of installed equipment. Higher-quality equipment than required by technology does not affect production parameters.

Wear and tear - the current degree of equipment wear and tear. A high degree of wear and tear will negatively affect the overall efficiency of the equipment, which leads to a decrease in the quality and quantity of products. Even at 100% efficiency of the equipment, the volume of output is still reduced in proportion to wear and tear. The standard service life of devices is 7 virtual years (weekly base wear and tear is approximately 0.27%). In addition, the quality of the equipment itself affects wear and tear (it decreases by 1% per quality unit) and the ratio of the required and current qualifications of the personnel working with it (workers with less than required qualifications wear out equipment faster than more intelligent employees). Worn out equipment directly affects its efficiency. Since depreciation is calculated as a percentage, partial wear and tear of a piece of equipment is possible - in this case, the marker “+1” is added to the value of the worn-out amount of equipment. Partially worn out equipment can be fixed only by fully replacing it.


Laboratory top manager

The total number of employees on profile skill - is the total number of employees of all subdivisions of this type in the company. It affects the efficiency of the Top-manager.

Skill level of player - the current level of “Science research” skill. Determines the maximum possible number and qualification of employees without loss of efficiency both in this particular unit and in all subdivisions of the company as a whole (an additional hint about the stock of the current level compared to the minimum required can be indicated in brackets, minimum - 0-25%, normal - 25-50%, good 50-100%, excellent - more than 100%).
