Enter the total value-added production time (min) and the total production cycle time (min) into the Manufacturing Cycle Efficiency Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Manufacturing Cycle Efficiency.

## Manufacturing Cycle Efficiency Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the Manufacturing Cycle Efficiency.

MCE = VAT / PCT * 100

Variables:

• MCE is the Manufacturing Cycle Efficiency (%)
• VAT is the total value-added production time (min)
• PCT is the total production cycle time (min)

To calculate the manufacturing cycle efficiency, divide the total value-added production time by the production cycle time, then multiply by 100.

## How to Calculate Manufacturing Cycle Efficiency?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Manufacturing Cycle Efficiency.

1. First, determine the total value-added production time (min).
2. Next, determine the total production cycle time (min).
3. Next, gather the formula from above = MCE = VAT / PCT * 100.
4. Finally, calculate the Manufacturing Cycle Efficiency.
5. After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

Example Problem :

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

total value-added production time (min) = 30

total production cycle time (min) = 75

MCE = VAT / PCT * 100 = ?
