What is Machine Time as a Percentage of Order Lead Time?

The number of minutes required for a machine to produce a single product divided by total customer order cycle time (i.e., the time from when the order is placed to when the product is received by the customer), as a percentage.

Why should Machine Time as a Percentage of Order Lead Time be measured?

Machine Time as a Percentage of Order Lead Time measures the amount of time spent in actually making a product ordered by a customer in relation to the amount of time it takes for a customer to receive the product they ordered. A high value for this metric can be indicative of slow loading and unloading times, high rework rates, low quality of installed equipment (such low quality equipment can require frequent replacement or maintenance), poor preventative maintenance practices, inaccurate demand forecasting methods and sub-par production employee training and performance. High machine time values, as a result, can lengthen the time it takes for customers to receive the products they ordered, thus increasing customer dissatisfaction and the potential for customer attrition.
