Cycles Part Two on How They Affect People. Since at least Neolithic times, builders of civilizations sought to counter the harmful effect cycles can have as they hit their peak. Basically they used a process that I call “transfer.” They transferred the effects of cyclic activity to a distinct physical plane. Often this took the form of a circle divided into four parts. There are many examples of how the Neolithic culture applied their knowledge of cycles. In this regard they were far more advanced than we are today in the 21st century. Here are a few classifications that pertain to business in the 21st century.
- (operations) The total elapsed time to complete an operation or set of operations.
- Order cycle time can now be minutes from when the customer starts entering an order to when it is visible to the warehouse.
- Production cycle time is not as important as the time spent in transit.
- Design cycle time for an all-new state-of-the-art compressor is still years from go-ahead to readiness for manufacture.
