# Performance

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Manufacturing Engineering

Performance, abbreviated as P, is anything that causes the manufacturing process to run at less than maximum possible speed.

## Performance Formula

 $$\large{ P = \frac{ CT \; TC }{ RT } }$$ $$\large{ P = \frac{ TC \; RT }{ RR } }$$

### Where:

$$\large{ P }$$ = performance

$$\large{ CT }$$ = ideal cycle time

$$\large{ RR }$$ = ideal run rate

$$\large{ RT }$$ = run time

$$\large{ TC }$$ = total count
