Part of the award-winning Manufacturing Insights video series, this program explains current practices in work measurement, and will show how manufacturers are using it to measure productivity improvements.
You'll see a basic time study conducted at Cooper Instrument Corporation and how MacGreggor Golf uses a work measurement system to develop standards and generate routings.
You'll also learn how Cramerton Automotive utilizes work sampling techniques on an inspection and packing line, and how Kohler depends on work measurement to establish and correct standards for both direct and indirect labor.
You will also hear from Royal Dossett, an expert on work measurement application and technology, and Donovan Young, Associate Professor of Industrial and Systems Engineering at Georgia Tech.
