What is motion and time study

What is Motion and Time Study

  • Motion Study is designed to determine to best way to complete a repetitive job

  • Time Study measures how long it takes an average worker to complete a task at a normal pace


History of motion and time study

History of Motion and Time Study

  • Frank B. Gilbreth, Lillian M Gilbreth

    -1885, he begun to develop motion study

  • Frederick W. Taylor

    -1881, he started to develop time study

    • Improve methods

    • It measures distance, or how much you move to do a job, and how much you get done in a period of time

  • Time study

    • Establish standards

    • Looked at the average time it took an average worker


Computing standards

  • Office

  • Banks

  • Department Stores

  • Hospitals


How do you decide if you need to do a motion and time study

How do you decide if you need to do a Motion and Time Study

  • Are costs too high(is there a problem)?

  • Why is there a problem?

  • How can it be solved?

  • Which alternative is better?

  • Choose the best alternative


Real world example a company using time study

Real World Example ACompany Using Time Study

Cooper Hospital/University Medical Center

  • Problem

    • HR Personnel was not very accessible to employees at the hospital

    • Hard to reach the right person to answer questions

    • Inefficient voice-mail system


Real world example a company using time study1

  • Tools Used

    • Bar-coding system

    • Computer

      Other

    • Determining the busiest time of the day

    • Establishing categories


Real world example a company using time study2

Real World Example ACompany Using Time Study

Cooper Hospital/University Medical Center

  • Discoveries

    • Majority of calls were for appointments

    • Many calls from outside sources for job verification


Results continued

Results Continued…..

  • Implementations

    • New systems

    • New positions

    • Improving service and costs


Motion and time study problem

Motion and Time Study Problem

  • There is a group of students stuffing envelopes. They have to put three different color-coded pages in the envelopes(red, white, orange).


Motion and time study problem1

Motion and Time Study Problem


Motion and time study problem2

Motion and Time Study Problem

  • Compute the standard time

  • Compute number of envelopes stuffed in one hour


Solution

Solution

  • To compute the standard time

    Adjust the normal cycle with an allowance factor of 10 percent

    ST= (NT)(1-AF)

    = (.1189)(1-.10)

    =.1070 min

    To compute number of envelopes in one hour

    60 min/.1070min/envelope= 560 envelopes an hour
