In the realm of operational excellence, one technique that stands out as a catalyst for efficiency and effectiveness is the Time and Motion Study. By analyzing task durations and production procedures, this approach enables businesses to minimize waste, optimize resource utilization, and foster a motivating work environment for sustained productivity. Faber Infinite has successfully implemented time and motion studies at various client sites, delivering exceptional results and cost savings. Let’s explore the remarkable benefits witnessed by one of our esteemed clients. 

Faber Infinite has done a comprehensive time and motion study for a few of our clients from diverse industries including automotive, engineering, healthcare, and more. Our mission: optimizing operations for unprecedented efficiency. The primary objective was to enhance manpower productivity by identifying and addressing the root causes of inefficiencies. Here are some of the tangible benefits achieved at the client’s facilities: 


33% Improvement in Production:

Through meticulous analysis and process streamlining, Faber Infinite significantly increased production output. This improvement showcased enhanced operational effectiveness and increased output capacity. 


42% Improvement in Productivity:

By breaking down tasks into manageable components, Faber Infinite identified opportunities for optimization, resulting in a remarkable boost in manpower productivity. This optimization led to more efficient resource utilization and cost reduction. 


43% Reduction in Changeover Time:
