I looking for a measure of fragmentation, and occupancy of a calendar.

This is to assist in managing calendar events in order to reduce gaps between events and increase overall efficiency.

Attached is an example calendar, the grey bars are events. Each row is a resource. The events can sometimes be moved to different resources, and it can be helpful to quantify the benefit of a move.

What kinds of analysis techniques exist in this area?

Are there any analogies to other systems that could be helpful. eg if the calendar were a river, the bars islands, maybe efficiency might be the average flow rate of the river?

Thanks for your thoughts here.
