Skateboard Assembly - Cycle Time Elementary - Averages STUDENT WORKSHEET Name: Assigned Station # After reviewing vocabulary and watching video clips: Question 1- Calculate the average time it takes to complete the tasks at your assigned station – Average Cycle Time. Table 1 Skateboard # Time (sec) 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 Step 1: Sum = Step 2: Complete the Formula for Average: Average = _______ of Values _______ of Values My Work => Average Time at this Station: seconds 3/11/2016 Rochester Institute of Technology/KGCOE REMS Program page 1 Skateboard Assembly - Cycle Time Elementary - Averages Question 2- Calculate the Average Cycle Time for the 10 skateboards from start to finish. Step 1: Record the average times at all stations (Include the times calculated by your classmates). Station # Table 2 Average Time 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 Step 2: Sum = Average Cycle Time: seconds 3. Brainstorm what changes can be made in order to reduce the cycle time of the skateboard assembly line. List your ideas here. After watching additional video clip(s)… What change(s) were made to the assembly line? 3/11/2016 Rochester Institute of Technology/KGCOE REMS Program page 2 Skateboard Assembly - Cycle Time Elementary - Averages 4. Calculate the new Average Cycle time it takes to complete the task at your assigned station. Table 3 Station # ________ Skateboard # Time (sec) 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 Step 1: Sum = Step 2: Complete the Formula for Average: Average = _______ of Values _______ of Values New Average Time at this Station: 3/11/2016 My Work => seconds Rochester Institute of Technology/KGCOE REMS Program page 3 Skateboard Assembly - Cycle Time Elementary - Averages 5. Calculate the NEW Average Cycle Time for the 10 skateboards from start to finish. Step 1: Record the average times at all stations (Include the times calculated by your classmates). Table 4 Station # Average Time 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 Step 2: Sum = New Average Cycle Time: seconds 6. Compare the two average cycle times calculated in questions #2 and #5. Which was faster? Would this be better? Why? When would a faster cycle time not be better? 3/11/2016 Rochester Institute of Technology/KGCOE REMS Program page 4
