Time Study and Work Measurement
Time study is a structured process of directly observing and measuring human work using a timing device to establish the time required for completion of the work by a qualified worker when working at a defined level of performance. The most common method of Time study is using Stopwatch.
PMTS or Predetermined Motion Time Systems are widely used in the industry to establish time standards and set production standards. PMC’s expertise in MODAPTS, MTM, and MOST is essential for labor cost control, cost estimation, existing methods improvement, training, planning and scheduling, balancing production lines and evaluation of alternatives, and often serve as the basis for incentive plans.
Generally applied to study non-repetitive tasks with long cycle times. It is the statistical technique for determining the proportions of time spent by subjects (e.g. workers, machines) in various defined categories of activity. It has the following uses:
- To determine total time devoted to various activities
- To determine machine/manpower utilization
- To determine allowances

Facility Layout and Material flow Optimization is the evaluation of multiple layout scenarios to design the optimum layout that reduces material handling costs, improves throughput, and minimizes space requirements.
Two key drivers of manufacturing productivity are production rate and process constraints. PMC helps our clients strike a balance these and other factors to arrive at sustainable, profitable solutions.
Productivity is defined as “the ratio of output to input” in manufacturing. Two key drivers for increased productivity are production rate and system efficiency. PMC always strives to strike a balance between these two factors for a more sustainable solution to our clients.
