Eddie Davilla shares the keys to creating an effective and efficient system that creates consistent products and services.
- Production processes seek to make things well, … make them quickly, and with minimal resources. … In order to do these things, … a production system must have a goal. … It must know how many products it will need to produce … in a certain period of time. … For example, suppose we know that a production system … must produce 20 units every hour. … That would mean the production line … would need to complete a new unit every three minutes. … That's our cycle time. … Cycle time is the production time divided by demand. … The production time is one hour, or 60 minutes, … and the required demand is 20 units, … so we get a cycle time of three minutes. … This number, cycle time, is important … because it means that we can't give any single worker … on our production line more than three minutes … of work per unit. … If we did give them more than three minutes … of work per unit, they would become a bottleneck, … and the system would slow down. … We would not be able to reach our demand … of 20 units per hour. …
