Enter the total number of parts produced and the total production time into the calculator to determine the cycle time.

## Cycle Time Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the cycle time of a produced good.

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.

## FAQ

**What is cycle time?**

A cycle time is the 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.
