    I have a question about Cycle times.

    A process takes 48 seconds to complete – this includes loading 4 parts into a nest, machine welds product until finally the nest releases the finished product and it is ready to be unloaded.

    Does this mean that the cycle time is 12 seconds (48secs/4 parts)?

    Hi
    Cycle time is the total time from beginning to end of the process and as agreed with the customer. So does the process manufacture 4 products at a time?

    Check the site on cycle times vs lead times etc.

    If you’re doing a process map, value chain map, etc. be sure to keep the units consistent. That part of the process would have one piece per 12 seconds assuming no waste–which is important to consider including setup times, downtimes, etc.
