  • Utilizing the work methods on a daily basis for coaching and counseling
  • The operational skills to coach and lead in a work standards environment

Measuring work in the modern world requires a systems perspective, so companies must begin looking beyond the traditional methods of measurement to achieve the most efficient operations. Discover the latest work measurement techniques at the one-day Best Practices in Managing Work Standards event.

What is Work Measurement?

Work measurement is performed to develop the standard time to perform operations. Time standards have traditionally been defined as the time required by a typical operator working at a normal pace to perform a specified task using a prescribed method, wit time for personal needs, fatigue and delay allowed. They are critical pieces of management information that apply to all kinds of work, including manufacturing, assembly and clerical. Managing this information is essential to the successful operation of organizations.
