              Two days workshop on
       for production managers, process and industrial engineers
        Tuesday- Wednesday, March 25-26th 2008, in Bucharest

      We would like to invite you to our 2 day workshop on Time Study and
Work Measurement. In this workshop we teach production managers and
engineers the correct methodology of determining corect standard operating
times in production and select the appropiate methods of measuring for each
specific condition.

       WHY TIME st udy is impo r ta nt ?

Time Study and Work Measurement is an essential part of the knowledge domain of
industrial Engineering.
The primary goal is to determine standard times for activities and operations by
measuring the work content. These are the times needed by a well trained,
motivated worker to perform these tasks during a whole day at a normal
performance level, taken into account both fatigue and personal time as well as
ergonomic circumstances.

Standard times are a needed for many purposes such as (lean) process design, cost
calculation and budgeting, productivity measurement, scheduling, input for ERP
systems, etc.

There exist different methods for determining standard times, each with their own
application areas, accuracy, ease of use/speed, strong and weak points: the
classical method of observing the process and using a stopwatch, more advanced
methods based on predetermined times (like MTM, Work Factor, MOST, LCW,…) as
well as statistically based techniques like Work Sampling for variable an non-
repetitive activities.

The aim of this course is to give the participants insight in the basic
philosophy of time study, which methods are available with their
advantages and disadvantages and how can they be applied and
implemented in practice.
