How to Calculate Process Velocity

Process Velocity is a measure of performance


Step 1

Find the Total throughout time and value-added time

Step 2

Plug the above values in formula below

Process Velocity=Total throughput time/value-added time

Step 3

Sample Problem:

Process Velocity= 5 weeks x 5 days x 7 hours a day/ 4 hours a day=43.75


which means that it takes 43.75 times as long to complete the product as it does to do the actual work on the product itself. The lower it is, the better.
