Cycle time is the time that a process takes to cycle. In orgtology we distinguish processes from projects in that projects begin and end, whilst processes cycle. The aim of a process is to cycle, not to end. Every back loop in a process has a cycle time. Collectively they create duration of a process. By knowing the cycle times, we can plan repetitive work. When developing targets, we also aim to reduce inefficiency through studying back loops within processes. Through this process we decide which loops have a fixed time and which ones we can reduce. In so, we create operational efficiency.
