Time studies are a common evaluation tool that is used to understand a manufacturing operation. A time study is often done for the following reasons:
The improvement of processes and procedures
The improvement of plan, office, or service area layout
Economy in human effort and the reduction of unnecessary fatigue
Improvement in the use of materials, machines, and manpower
Development of better physical working environment
When done correctly, time studies provide a granular, normalized view of a multi-step process. They can be used to drive efficiency in processes, improve factory and process design, and improve the output and experience of workers.
Some common uses for time studies include:
Setting and standardizing step times
Establishing KPIs for a manufacturer’s processes
Locating and eliminating inefficiencies in processes
Collecting data to help predict yearly output and revenue
Tightening yearly resource and inventory planning
Identifying skills gaps and creating targeted training initiatives.
