What methods do you use to continue to monitor your factory's efficiency and production rates after all storage is full? Now that I've unlocked and automated everything, my storage has filled and most machines are stopped. I'd like to be able to continue to monitor and tweak things to maximize efficiency. Once a machine stops running it doesnt draw power anymore, and so I'd like to be able to possibly see a "maximum working load" displayed when looking at my power grid, so I can build accordingly.Currently I can only see what load is currently being placed on the power grid. Let me know if you guys have any suggestions to either keep machines running other than building tons and tons of storage.

I'd suggest putting factory monitoring screens in the MAM room would be nice, just a way to view "possible" efficiencies, as well as view your entire power grid profile

You can always Ctrl-drag the entire content of the container to the garbage to get it all started up again.

You can add it all up.

I generally just build until I hit the limit and then add more electricity. I recommend keeping all electrical generators in the same place and having only one line connecting them to the factory so that you can just cut the line to produce the input for the generators so that you don't have to manually do it.

I also recommend using only oil for power as coal is much more useful as an ingredient.

Power is always 100% efficient as it only produces what is needed (thus only consuming a percentage) so don't worry about having more power plants than you need as long as the max power is greater than the need.
