In takted flows, processes are synchronized so that delays in the flow can be minimized. Applying Takt to a flow is also a way of making clear to all involved what is expected of them.
Work relating to the introduction of Takt in a flow starts with creating the right conditions to ensure that Takt gives rise to the desired effect. The main prerequisites are an understanding in the organization, a standardized approach and a leveled and well-balanced flow. Given these conditions, it is possible to develop and implement a practical Takt solution that is tailored to specific operational conditions.
Applying Takt to a flow helps to reduce the lead time and costs in the flow. Takt also makes it easier to detect deviations, which is the basis for improvement.
