The most relevant factor which affects the production cycle time per unit is the size of a series. The production cycle mean value for the groups formed according to the number of units in a series tpcu moves along the hyperbolic function which has asymptote c, tpcu = c + b/n, and, mathematically, these groups do not behave as strata, which means they are linked to deterministic factors of technology and number of units/series. This paper presents the application of original model on reduction in the duration of the production cycle time in serial production – research case is metal processing industry.
