Idle Time

The idle time refers to the time between the end of one process activity and the start of the next. During the idle time, a work item, for example a workpiece or document, is not processed, inspected, transported or stored due to a sequence or malfunction. For example, idle times are the time between two production steps or the further processing of a customer ticket. Idle times extend the process and have a negative effect on the cycle time.
