What is a Takt Time Calculator, and what are best practices, tools and online templates for teams and organizations?
Definition of Takt Time Calculator
Takt is a German word which refers to the orchestra conductor’s baton and is used to regulate tempo in a musical piece. In Six Sigma, Takt Time refers to the available time for production divided by the required units of production during the same period. Time available for production includes the total number of hours that employees work on production minus any breaks or meetings. Takt Time is the sell rate, or the number of products that must be produced every hour in order to meet demand.
Description of Takt Time Calculator
Takt Time is the time available for productive work in a certain time period divided by the number of products required per day. The Takt Time Calculator allows business leaders or managers to input the amount of time that is available for productive work per day and divide that by the number of products required each day. The output from the calculator provides the amount of time needed in productive time to meet the production demands – the Takt Time.
