Marching ahead in the time of crisis, backup and precautions are extremely important even for fortune 500 companies, where the constant change in technology and market habits are inescapable. However, the increase in productivity and overall improvement is under the control of the management. Time and Motion Study is a proven work measurement methodology not only for recording and evaluating a rate of work for the elements but also equipped to uncover inefficiencies and areas of improvement.
Time and Motion studies define the groundwork and enable to arrive at better capacities, awareness, and robust planning system that lead the operations of a plant to Operational Excellence. A Time Standard is an important component of Time and Motion Study. A time standard takes into account three factors: qualified worker, working at a normal pace, and performing a specific task.
A continuous improvement mindset is much-needed essential towards continual growth. The focus of the industry should be on getting the right things to the right place at the right time in the right quantity to achieve perfect work flow while minimizing waste and being flexible and able to change.
Going back to the history and traditional definition of Time and Motion Study reveals it as a method for establishing employee productivity standards in which:
(1) A complex task is broken into small, simple steps.
(2) The sequence of movements taken by the employee in performing those steps is carefully observed to detect and eliminate redundant or wasteful motion.
(3) Precise time taken for each correct movement is measured.
From these measurements, production and delivery times and prices can be computed and incentive schemes can be devised. Generally appropriate for repetitive tasks, time and motion studies were pioneered by the US industrial engineer Frederick Winslow Taylor (1856-1915) and developed by the husband and wife team of Frank Gilbreth (1868-1924) and Dr. Lillian Gilbreth (1878-1972).
Our teams are helping the organizations in minimizing waste, making precise use of available resources, cutting costs, improving a workplace environment, and motivating the workforce for higher and sustainable productivity.
