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)

## How to Calculate Manufacturing Cycle Efficiency?

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

- First, determine the total value-added production time (min).
- Next, determine the total production cycle time (min).
- Next, gather the formula from above = MCE = VAT / PCT * 100.
- Finally, calculate the Manufacturing Cycle Efficiency.
- 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** **= ?
