Cycle Time Formula
The following formula is used to calculate the cycle time of a produced product.
CT = RT / P
- Where CT is the cycle time (mins/part)
- P is the total units produced (parts)
- RT is the total run time for the parts produced (min)
Cycle Time Definition
A cycle time is defined as the total time it takes to produce one unit of a product or manufactured good.
Cycle Time Example
How to calculate cycle time?
- First, determine the number of parts produced in a shift.
For this example, we will say that 1000 parts were made.
- Next, determine the length of the shift.
For this example, we will assume a standard shift of 8 hours = 480 min.
- Finally, calculate the cycle time.
Using the formula we find the cycle time to be 1000/480 = 2.083 min/part.
A cycle time is a measure of how long it takes to produce a given part. For example, a part may take 20min to run 10 parts. The cycle time is then described as 2 min per part.
