Enter the original cycle time (min) and the current cycle time (min) into the Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Process Cycle Time Reduction.

## Process Cycle Time Reduction Formula

PCTR = OCT - CCT

Variables:

- PCTR is the Process Cycle Time Reduction (min)
- OCT is the original cycle time (min)
- CCT is the current cycle time (min)

To calculate Process Cycle Time Reduction, subtract the current cycle time from the original cycle time.

## How to Calculate Process Cycle Time Reduction?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Process Cycle Time Reduction.

- First, determine the original cycle time (min).
- Next, determine the current cycle time (min).
- Next, gather the formula from above = PCTR = OCT – CCT.
- Finally, calculate the Process Cycle Time Reduction.
- 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.

original cycle time (min) = 60

current cycle time (min) = 30
