Methods-Time Measurement (MTM)

MTM-2 is a system of synthesized MTM data and is the second general level of MTM data
Consist of
Single basic MTM motions Combinations of basic MTM motions

Work cycle >1 The cycle is not highly repetitive manual not complex or simultaneous hand motions

Classifications: 11 classes of actions Special situations:

Principle of simultaneous motions Principle of limiting motions Principle of combined motions

MTM-2 System

MTM-2 System
MTM-2 classes of actions

MTM-2 simultaneous hand motion allowances

Methods-Time Measurement (MTM)

Save time at the expense of some accuracy: 5%,95% Not use for operations: eye focus, eye travel time 4 categories of manual motions: handle, transport, step and foot motions, bend and arise

Use in metal cutting operations To establish setup time for all typical machine tools

Use in baking and insurance industries,2-level system To establish time standards for clerical-related works

Methods-Time Measurement (MTM)

MTM-M: Use for evaluating operator work using a stereoscopic microscope Other specialized MTM systems
MTM-TE: electronic test, 3-level MTM-MEK: electronic test, 3-level, small-lot MTM-UAS: describe process, determine allowed times for batch production, 3-level system

MTM systems comparison

Criteria: accuracy, number of therbligs utilized, time to analyze a job (at 90% confidence level) MTM-2 is the best

Maynard Operation Sequence Technique (MOST)

A simplified system: fast establish time standards MOST identifies 3 basic sequence models:
General move: free object movement through the air Controlled move: object remains contact with surface or attached to another objects during the movement Tool use: use of common hand tools

Two adaptations: Mini and Maxi MOST

Mini MOST: identical, short-cycle operations Maxi MOST: long-cycle operations

Both manual and computerized versions
