Takt Time
Example:
  – Determine the daily demand (order) volume. Let's say wehave orders for 215 super widget units per day. – Determine the number of working minutes in a day. Saythat we have an eight-hour day, with 30 minutes for lunchand two 10-minute breaks. This means we have (8 x 60)-30-10-10=430 minutes, or 430 minutes in a working day. – Divide the number of minutes by the number of productsneeded. In our current example, the calculation would be430/215, which equals 2. This means that one unit must bemanufactured every other minute in order to meetdemand. Takt time is 2 minutes.
