Module 1 – Cycle Time Overview
The course will begin by presenting a basic definition of cycle time, as well as how cycle time is affected, and benefits of reducing cycle time. Module one will continue with information about measuring cycle time, and conclude with information about lean processes and standard operating procedures as they relate to cycle time.

Module 2 – Blueprinting and Supplements
Module two will present APDAs with a basic understanding of blueprinting, and 100% teardown, both of which can be beneficial for improving cycle time. The course concludes with information about supplements and their effect on cycle time.
