11-17 (Appendix 11A) Calculating Cycle Time and Velocity

Refer to the information for Indy Company above.


Compute the (1) theoretical cycle time (in minutes), (2) actual cycle time (in minutes), (3) theoretical velocity in units per hour, and (4) actual velocity in units per hour.


To determine

Calculate theoretical cycle time (in minutes).


Cycle Time:

Cycle time is the activity performance measure that calculates the duration of time which is required to manufacture one unit of product.

Use the following formula to calculate the theoretical cycle time:

Theoretical cycle time=(Productive hours×Number of minutes in an hour)Maximum units produced

Substitute 25,000 hours for productive hours, 60 minutes for a number of minutes in an hour and 250,000 units for maximum units produced in the above formula


To determine

Calculate the actual cycle time (in minutes).


To determine

Calculate theoretical velocity (in units per hour).


To determine

Calculate actual velocity (in units per hour).
