System: MTM-1: Methods-Time Measurement (MTM-1) is a procedure which analyzes any manual operation or method into the Basic Motions required to perform it, and assigns to each motion a predetermined time standard, which is determined by the Influencing Factors under which it is made. MTM-1 is used for Process Type 1 activities, where the following application conditions exist:
- production with a very high degree of repetition
- short cycle work processes
- detail-designed processes
- work instructions with precise descriptions of methods
- deviations in individual operator methods must be minimized
Course: This 5-day course includes coverage of the practical application of MTM-1. A Certificate of Completion from the MTM-1 Base course is a pre-requisite.
