Takt Time is the “beat’, or tempo, of each process for the given volume and mix of product. Think “Metronome”. As a very simple example, assume we have a short day of 400 effective work minutes, and we need to produce 100 units. So, over the course of the day, we must finish one unit every 4 minutes. The formula to calculate Takt Time is:
4.00 = 400 / 100
Show your Takt Time results in minutes, with two decimal places.
