Reducing Any And All Cycle Time By 75%

Empirical evidence gathered from companies in the U.S. and Canada shows that companies that reduce total manufacturing cycle time by 75% will double productivity, reduce the break-even point of a facility by 20%, grow at three times the industry average, and have two times the industry average margin. The work has proven that it is physically possible to reduce cycle time by 75% in a manufacturing area or product line in as little as three months, and that it can routinely be done in six months. One major reason to reduce cycle time is to get more of the manufacturing process out of the make-to-forecast mode and into the make-to-order mode, without demanding that customers wait longer between their order and their receipt of product.
