There's indeed a lot of other factors that influence the cycle. Hard to find out...

Contact your maintenance provider with an EMM for your model of engine - it is in Chapter 5 from memory.

You may find an example of a recording sheet or similar there.

The B3 counts the NG cycle as follow:

For Utility Operators which do a lot of external load work, Pilot flying characteristic does make a huge difference on Cycles.

Also, operating in smooth air (for example in the morning vs afternoon) for a given construction site makes difference how the Pilot is able the keep the NG steady at a certain value, especially during a decent with a light load or empty hook in close proximity.

Hope this helps
