Motion and time study has finally found a home in the modern plant by helping employees to understand the nature and the true costs of work, assist management in reducing unnecessary costs, and balance work cells to make work flow smoother. This how-to motion and time study book provides readers with a resource that describes the techniques and procedures of motion and time study. Practical, detailed advice is given on all aspects of motion and time study including work station design, job analysis, and the techniques of setting time standards.
A new chapter places motion and time study in the context of lean manufacturing. This edition also includes a new section on ergonomics and the environmental aspects of the workplace, while continuing the hands-on approach of prior editions.
For engineers and plant managers.
