Let us start with the mathematical formula:

### Takt Time = Time you have / Piece to produce in that time

- Pitfall 1 - You think to have deeply understood how to use it

- Pitfall 2 - You consider the Takt Time not so important.

I think now you have understood that **Takt Time has to be taken seriously.**

Right?

If yes, let us start with a very easy **quiz for Takt Time calculation.**

A company of chairs has to produce **1000 chairs in 5 working days.**

Every working day is of **420 minutes.**

What is the **Takt Time for the company?**

**A)** 420 minutes

**B)** 2.1 minutes

**C)** 2.38 minutes

Wrong Answer –> Try Again.

Correct!

420 minute * 5 Days = 2100 minutes

2100 minutes / 1000 chairs = **2,1 minutes **

Wrong Answer –> Try Again.

**Were you right at the first shot?** Try again.

A company of cars has to produce **2000 cars in 20 working days.**

Every working day is of **420 minutes.**

What is the **Takt Time for the company?**

**A)** 4.2 minutes

**B)** 42 minutes

**C)** 420 minutes

Correct!

420 minute * 20 Days = 8400 minutes

8400 minutes / 2000 cars = **4,2 minutes **

Wrong Answer –> Try Again.

Wrong Answer –> Try Again.
