    I’m in the beginning stages of doing a project on turnaround time. What kind of business model should I use? Has anyone done a similar project?

    @kam221 Did you try searching our site for ideas? A quick search reveals a lot of results for “turnaround time” and “TAT”.

    My “go-to” tool when time is the concern is a Time Value Map.  It shows how much time is spent on each step, which are value-added and non-value-added, and wait time between steps.  You want to minimize the non-value-added and wait before trying to speed up the value-added.  There are three caveats about using a TVM.  It assumes a stable  process.  It assumes a linear process.  You have to measure time for each step often enough to be confident about the average (see sample size), and if there’s wide variance in any step that’s another problem.

    do you have a problem statement and a metric chart(s) that the project champion agrees are measures of success?
