is the maximum allowable cycle time required to meet customer demands. This is a video that defines takt time and gives an example of how to calculate takt time. Takt time is important to the development and evaluation of standard work. For example, if your takt time is 5 minutes, the cycle time for each operator in your must be below 5 minutes to meet customer demand.
In my other tutorials I show how you can use SigmaXL to perform your analysis. Since SigmaXL was included with my Black Belt certification tuition, I want to show you that you can use the Lean Takt Time calculator to perform this calculation. The calculator allows you to quickly compare your takt time to your cycle times listed in your standard work. As you can see, takt time is used to evaluate your standard work and recognize opportunities for improvement or modification.
