What is the takt time?

The takt time calculation starts with the available working time for one shift, which is 28,800 seconds (8 hours), subtract any non-working time, which is two 10 minute breaks per shift.  The custom demand X units per shift is then divided into the available working time to us the takt time in seconds.

Available Working Time: 28,800 – 1200 = 27,600 seconds per shift

Available Working Time / Customer Demand:   27,000 / units per shift

Takt Time = X seconds

Takt time is a reference number defined by the customer and cannot be changed by supplying company.
