reduce cycle time and inventories to meet market response times
"heartbeat" of the customer
Takt = T/D T is Time available for product/service D is a demand for the number of units
Takt gives information on production pace or units per hours.
process of documented description of methods, materials, tools, and processing times required to meet takt time
This aids in standardizing the tasks throughout the value stream.

The idea that, although customer order patterns may be quite variable, all of our processes should build consistent quantities of work over time (day to day, hour to hour).
This strategy is adopted by intelligently planning different product mix , and its volumes over period of times.
OEE ( Overall Equipment Efficiency ) : OEE = A x PE x Q A - Availability of the machine.. PE - Performance Efficiency. Q - Refers to quality rate.
A team-based system for improving Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE), which includes availability, performance, and quality.
This aids in establishing a strategy for creating employee ownership autonomously for maintenance of equipment.
The goal of the TPM program is to markedly increase production while at the same time increasing employee morale and job satisfaction.
