Every Cost Engineer has been tasked with creating a SHOULD COST on a process they are unfamiliar with and the software of choice does not have a method to reliable CYCLE TIME. So what do you do? You may do days of research, reading old text books, search the internet and maybe even have to visit manufactures or business that utilize this technology that you are unaware of.
You probably are asking yourself, “Hasn’t someone else had this same request? I can’t be the first to try to model this process. Is there a place I can get help?” This is it.
The idea is that if you have developed a method of calculating a CYCLE TIME for a unique process, post it here for others to use. If you need a CYCLE TIME calculator for a process you are unfamiliar with, check here first. If you can’t find on that fits your need, ask the community through the comments section.
