So, I was looking at the SCIOLY rules for this event and wondered what was the point of the target operation time. Is the point of the time to get closest to it? I saw that if your machine finished earlier than the target time, then you would get points... Doesn't that take away the point of the target time? I was just a bit confused...
Can someone confirms this?

Section 5. g. in the rules states: "g. Award 4 points for each full second (rounded down) of operation up to the Target Operation Time"
So for example, if the target operation time is a minute, and the device runs for 58 seconds, the team would be awarded 232 points.
For every second the device runs over the target operation time costs it 2 points.
So for example, if the target operation time is a minute, and the device runs for 62 seconds, the team would be awarded (60 x 4) = 240. (2 x 2) = 4, 240-4=236 points.
