Using Little's Law, Calculate WIP given a cycle time of 100 and a throughput of 5

CT = | WIP |

TH |

WIP = **500**

WIP = **500**

Given two out of the three inputs for Littles Law, Throughput (TH), Cycle Time (CT, and WIP, this solves for the third item.

This calculator has 3 inputs.

This calculator has 3 inputs.

- cycle time
- the amount of time a team spends actually working on producing an item, up until the product is ready for shipment
- law
- a mathematical statement which always holds true
- littles law
- the average number of items in a stationary queuing system, based on the average waiting time of an item within a system and the average number of items arriving at the system per unit of time.

CT = WIP/TH - output
- what comes out of a function
