Cycle time in calendar days from discovering an invoice error to its resolution
Cycle time is the total time from the beginning of the process to the end. This includes both time spent actually performing the process and time spent waiting to move forward.
An invoice is a bill prepared by a seller of goods or services and submitted to the buyer. Generally, an invoice contains all pertinent information about the transaction including the date, price, quantity, item number, and credit terms. An invoice can be in either electronic or hard copy form.
