How to Calculate Takt Time in Production Process

One Methods:

Knowing Takt time helps you to estimate your service delivery process and process/software outcome. It can help you achieve a consistent, continuous flow of production, eliminate the waste of overproduction by producing to actual customer demands, and develop standardized work instructions (thus promoting quality and efficiency). More importantly, Takt time enables you to set real time targets for production that show the staff exactly where to focus their output efforts. To calculate Takt time, simply divide your available time by the rate of customer demand.

Steps

  1. Calculate your demand .i.e what does your end user or customer typically want every day/week/month
  2. Calculate your available time (excluding your breaks,meeting times)
  3. Calculate your Takt time ( Available time/ Demand)
  4. Compare your cycle time against Takt time using any chart(recommended Bar chart)
  5. Draw a value stream mapping and there you can provide the Takt time at each activity step.

Helpful Information

  • Takt time is the pace of production (E.g in Manufacturing one piece every minute) that aligns production with customer demand
  • In plain English, it is how fast you need to manufacture product in order to fill your customer demand
  • Takt time calculation=Available time / customer demand. For example if customer requires 100 bulbs a day, the Takt time the Takt time is 8 hrs /100
  • 8 hrs is the working time in your 9 hours working day (so you need to exclude your breaks, meetings etc) to mention the available time(numerator)
  • This means a bulb to be completed every 4.8 minutes

    How do you calculate the available time?

    Community Answer
    Available time = Planned production time - Down time and Stop time. Planned production time = Shift length - Breaks. Stop time = break time, meeting time, and/or changeover time.
    Thanks!

    Knowing takt time gives you a better understanding of your service delivery process, thereby giving you the ability to help maximize efficiency and minimize waste.
    Thanks!
  • Question
    How close should the cycle time be to the takt time?
    wikiHow Contributor
    Community Answer
    For optimum operation, you should strive to have the two be the same or very close to the same.
    Thanks!
  • Question
    How do I analyze Takt results?
    wikiHow Contributor
    Community Answer
    Compare the Takt time with the cycle times for each operation in the process. If the cycle time is greater than the Takt time in some operations, you need to improve in those operations. Also, if the cycle time is less than the Takt time in certain operations, you can look into whether some additional work from the operation whose cycle time was greater can be given to this operation.
    Thanks!
  • Question
    Is TAKT time independent of the number of workers?
    wikiHow Contributor
    Community Answer
    TAKT time is the available production time divided by the units a customer demands. For example, if a customer requires 100 light bulbs in an 8 hour day, the TAKT time is 8 hours / 100 bulbs. The calculation does not take into consideration the number of workers.
    Thanks!
