4. 4. AN INTRODUCTION TO TIME STUDY Time Study is a work measurement technique for recording the times and rates of working for the element of a specialized job carried out under specified conditions, and for analyzing the data so as to obtain the time necessary for carrying out the job at a defined level of performance. A distinction is made in time study practice between what are termed representative workers and qualified workers. A representative worker is one whose skill and performance is the average of the group under consideration. He is not necessarily a qualified worker. The concept of the qualified worker is an important one in time study. He is defined as follows: A qualified worker is one who is accepted as having the necessary physical attributes, who possesses the required intelligence and education, and who has acquired the necessary skill and knowledge to carry out the work in hand to satisfactory standards of safety, quantity and quality. For time study, an average qualified worker is studied. STEPS IN A TIME STUDY When the work to be measured has been selected, the time study usually consists of the following eight steps: 1) Obtaining and recording all the information available about the job, the operative and the surrounding conditions, which is likely to affect the carrying out of the work. 2) Recording a complete description of the method, breaking down the operation into “elements”. 3) Examining the detailed breakdown to ensure that the most effective method and motions are being used, and determining the sample size. 4) Measuring with a time device (usually a stop watch) and recording the time taken by the operative to perform each “element” of the operation. 5) At the same time, assessing the effective speed of working of the operative relative to the observer’s concept of the rate corresponding to standard rating. 6) Extending the observed times to “basic times”. Method Study and Time Study by AMIT ANUJ AJAD and AMARTO 4
5. 5. 7) Determining the allowances to be made over and above the basic time for the operation. 8) Determining the “standard time” for the operation. ELEMENTS An element is a distinct part of a specified job selected for convenience of observation, measurement and analysis. Types of elements 1. A repetitive element is an element which occurs in every work cycle of the job. 2. An occasional element is one which doesn’t occur in every work cycle of operation but may occur at regular or irregular intervals 3. A constant element is an element for which the basic time remains constant whenever it is performed. 4. A variable element is one for which basic time varies in relation to some characteristics of the product. 5. A manual element is an element performed by a worker. 6. A machine element is one that is automatically performed by a power driven machine. Once started, it cannot be influenced by the worker. 7. A governing element is an element occupying a longer time than that of any other element being performed concurrently. 8. A foreign element is an element, observed during study, which after analysis is not found to be essential part of the job. WORK CYCLE A work cycle is the sequence of elements which are required to perform a job or yield a unit of production. The sequence may sometimes include occasional elements.

6. 6. THE ASSIGNMENT: An operation of Regular Placket making with side seam and shoulder attachment of a Shirt has been assigned and it is required that we study the existing method using principles of work study and thereby propose a new method which is more efficient. OBJECTIVE OF THE ASSIGNMENT: To understand the concept behind work study and their implementation in: Improvement of processes and procedures • Improvement in the design of the plant and equipment • Improvement in the use of men, materials and machines • Efficient materials handling • Improvement in the flow of production and processes • Economy in human effort and the reduction of unnecessary fatigue • Method standardization • Development of better physical working environment • ASSUMPTIONS FOR THE STUDY: • We assume that our operator is a skilled qualified worker required for time study and hence we shall give the rating 100 • As we are working on an experimental scale and not a very large scale we shall take 5 observations for the existing method and two each for the proposed methods • We shall assume the following standard allowances for our calculations: Personal allowance: 11 % Machine Allowance: 5 % Contingency Allowance: 3 % • We are assuming a 8 hr shift wherein the total number of working hours in a day are 8 and the month is assumed to be of 30 days Method Study and Time Study by AMIT ANUJ AJAD and AMARTO 6
7. 7. THE ORIGINAL METHOD: The existing method adopted is the traditional method in practice for making shirt front plackets. An operation breakdown of the same has been shown below which depicts the flow process and the process breakdown.

34. 34. CALCULATIONS: Total Basic Time: 21.74 sec Calculation of SAM: Personal Allowance: 11% Personal Allowance = 11/100 * 21.74= 2.39 Machine Allowance: 5 % 5/100 * 21.74= 1.08 Contingency Allowance: 3 % 3/100 * 21.74= 0.65 Total Allowances = Machine Allowance + Personal allowance + Contingency Allowance = 2.39 sec + 1.08 sec + 0.65 sec = 4.12 sec SAM (Standard Allowed Minutes) = Basic Time + Total Allowances Therefore SAM = 21.74+ 4.12 = 25.86 sec Method Study and Time Study by AMIT ANUJ AJAD and AMARTO 34
35. 35. CONCLUSION: We can conclude from the above listed observations and charts that: • Conformance to ergonomic standards affects productivity to a great extent • Comfort of operator is directly reflected in output • Work study is the biggest tool which enables us to assess the present techniques and propose new more efficient methods BIBLIOGRAPHY: • Work Study by O.P.Khanna • Introduction to Work Study (An ILO publication) • Motion and Time Study by Ralph M.
