    Hello!
    I would like to calculate the takt time for a production system. The factory has a functional layout with 100 different parts, so then, each of them follow a different root.
    Could anybody help me?
    Thank you very much

    Hi,
    have you read something about it ?
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Takt_time
    Just have a quick look. But, be aware that you will have to do a lot of breakdowns in order to have a clear view of you tack time.
    You were probably asked to reduce your cycle time or eliminate waste. So, the best way is to map your entire process from initial forecast from your customer until you deliver the product at hid door.
    Them, you will have do build a VSM to optimize everything.
    If you need further help let me know
    Good luck

    If your parts are produced in machines/equipment, the maximum output (as designed) of the machines is the takt time.

    Takt time is your hours available divided by customer demand.

    In all probability, you have the same available time each day.  But for each of your 100 different parts; you very well may have 100 different customer demand levels.
    So, guess what.  You may have 100 different takt times.
    Ignore what was mentioned about the capacity of the machinery.  It is like Xgames said; it is all about your available time and customer demand.
