[Calculator] How to Calculate Your Overall Line Efficiency

Line efficiency calculator sponsored by Garvey

Do you know what the bottleneck is in your manufacturing process? The limiting factor that’s keeping you from ramping up your production or sometimes even meeting your goals?

This bottleneck is your constraint, and it should be your top priority because it’s determining the efficiency for the rest of your line. Until you increase the capacity of your constraint, you won’t be able to increase your throughput.

Constraints can take many forms. But in most processing lines, the primary constraint is the piece of equipment that has the lowest net output. The only way to improve overall line efficiency is by improving the performance of this equipment.

To find your constraint and calculate your line efficiency, leave your information below. Simply answer three questions about your production line, and the calculator will do the rest.
