Rene' has a really good paper that discusses this topic.

The larger issues are how to track the number cut per hour.  It's easy to
get a daily rate, but breaking it down to blocks/hour when techs are doing
multiple tasks makes it a bit more challenging.

Are people willing to share how they track the number of blocks cut per
hour per tech?
