Companies need to add a critical measure of success to their operational analysis package. They need to understand and calculate inventory turns and to use that data to drive rapid throughput from receiving to shipping. Stacks of inventory at any stage in the process represent large financial losses.
Cycle Time Analysis
Instructor: John M Ryan
Product ID: 509818
A focus on improving cycle times simply means that the time from material receipt to receipt of the check for the work done is greatly reduced. Japanese automakers consistently achieve inventory turns in the neighborhood of 125 per year while most American manufacturers achieve an average of 3 inventory turns per year. Quite simply, this means the company costs, quality, ability to deliver on time and other critical company measures are not where they should be.

Bring your suppliers closer, cut confusion on their delivery dates and your receipt dates.

This cycle time analysis webinar is intended to help companies save the money wasted by holding large incoming, in process and final goods inventories.
