cycle time

cycle time
The length of time required from the placing of an order by a customer to the delivery of the product or service. In companies using just in time techniques, this should be equivalent to the time taken from start to finish of the manufacturing process. Reducing cycle times is very important for just-in-time companies; some ways in which this can be done include reducing set-up times, improving quality to reduce time spent on inspection and replacing faulty parts, and preventative maintenance to reduce machine downtime.
