Perhaps, the realization of performance benefits from internationalization is achieved when internationalization interacts with other factors, such as cycle time reduction, to yield a competitive benefit.
Cycle time is only a component of what is important; throughput is the measurement that will really tell how quickly a line will actually produce quality boards.
For instance, the product a management team tracked document release cycle times, documents released per person per month and document accuracy.
For production cycle time, management decides the best cycle is 2 hours, the worst is 40 hours and normal is 25 hours.
Handles weight to 12 lb and operates on a cycle time of about 4.
Such improvements in cycle time can result in lower per-part costs due to increased manufacturing efficiencies.
A supplier that makes the same part but uses a tower that only brings the coolant to 80 has a cycle time of 78 seconds.
Other cycle time measurements include the length of blow time, gas time and purge time.
Increasing throughput for the entire manufacturing operation is the same as decreasing cycle time.
