Structure : Manufacturing Process And Production Cycle Keynote charts - calendar time for the manufacture of the product, starting with the launch of raw materials in production and ending with the receipt of finished products. It is characterized by duration (hours, days) and structure. The production cycle includes working time and breaks in the labor process.
The structure of the production cycle refers to the relationship between its various components. Of fundamental importance is the specific gravity of production time, especially technological operations and natural processes. The higher it is, the better the composition and structure of the production cycle.
The production cycle, calculated without taking into account the breaks associated with the operating mode of the enterprise, characterizes the level of organization of production of this product. With the help of the production cycle, the time is set for the start of processing of raw materials in certain operations, the time for the start-up of the corresponding equipment. If all types of breaks are taken into account in the calculation of the cycle, then the calendar time (date and hours) of launching the processing of the planned production batch is set.
