Station Cycle Time Formula

The Station Cycle time formula states that the average cycle time at a station in a production system includes actual Processing Time (PT), as well as Move Time (MT), Setup Time (ST), Queuing Time (QT), Batch Time (BT) (CT=PT + MT + QT + ST + BT) Cycle time for an end-to-end process is CT = PT + MT + SDT + BT + QT where SDT represents the shift differential time.
