Lean improvement cycle

I am working on implementing OEE in one of our machines that makes centertubes for automotive oil filters. The steel is rolled and each part number has specific diameter and length. However, the run-rates vary for each part numbers. I am somewhat able to calculate Takt time for each part number based on the standard run-rate. However, the problem for me is to determine Ideal Cycle Time. The machine can run as fast as 65 PPM for one part number while it runs as slow as 13 PPM for some other part number. In this case, what would be the optimal way to calculate Ideal Cycle Time for each part numbers? As you know, Ideal Cycle time is required to calculate Performance Metric of OEE.

Strength and power are gained through this precise and detailed approach of gathering and analyzing data. Emphasis is placed on the idea that process speed is directly tied to excellence. Even the most minor opportunities for process improvement are detected and acted upon, enabling organizations to reach their highest levels of performance. Originally developed as a set of practices designed to improve manufacturing with lean tools, it now extends into other types of business processes as well. This lean solution accentuates several beliefs including:
