Cycle Time Analysis:  Cut Costs and Save Time

August 7, 2014 – Noon to 1 PM (EDT) 


This training focuses on a little known strategy for analyzing cycle times.  Simply put, the cycle time is the time that it takes a sales order, product, or inventory to move through any defined process.  By a using this simple cycle time analysis tool, teams can contribute to the reduction of overall organizational costs, reduce inventory costs and work in process, and improve order fulfillment capabilities.

When paperwork or product pile up and the demand for “more people” grows, companies can take a look at performing a simple analysis to determine whether the demand is real or a product of poor processing.  The analysis is free and takes very little time to complete but the rewards can be huge.

Training Goals

The training will illustrate the use of cycle time analysis using production line, inventory and paperwork processes however, cycle time analysis can be used for any defined process.  By the end of the training hour, attendees will be able to quickly analyze virtually any process, identify previously unknown bottlenecks in the process and begin planning and managing the changes that are required to save time and money.  They will be able to immediately apply cycle time concepts throughout workplace operations.
