Only collect results for a part of the simulation

I am trying to simulate an industrial workshop. The machines are manned 06:00-24:00, i.e. 18 hours per day. A few machines have long cycles of 4-5 hours. An operator could start a long job before leaving work and have the maching going during the night, which makes the machine avaible pretty much 24 hours per day.

However, most other jobs are rather short, <1h, and cannot really be done unmanned.

How can I run the simulation with 24 hour days, but still evaluate the activities from a 18 hour day? The issue here being that the machines/activities that cannot run unmanned will never achieve a higher workload than 18/24=75%.

Greateful for your ideas.
