What do you understand by the efficiency of the operating cycle?
It is determined by activity ratios, keeping in view the conversion process, which is as follows:
Operating Cycle = Inventory sale days (average) + Receivable Collection days (average).
Shorter operating cycle higher the quality of current assets and the greater the efficiency of management.
