In this process all the parts of product are assembled in a sequence and it maves use of conveyers,motors etc for movement of product which reduces assembly time.

Takt time is time gap between to consecutive operations in assembly line.

The image is showing examples of *cycle* time, not takt time. Cycle time identifies the length of time required to complete process steps. If it takes 10 minutes to assemble components A and B, that's the process cycle time.

Takt time, however, is the "drum beat" of the rate of customer demand. If the customer needs 8 of those planes built in an 8 hour shift, the takt time would be 1 hour.

The relationship between cycle time and takt time guides the engineer in selecting the number of work cells, balancing work flow, identifying areas for continuous improvement, etc.
