Best Practices in Managing Work Standards 2013 


Without work standards, your business can’t work efficiently.

Measuring work in the modern world requires a systems perspective, so companies must begin looking beyond the traditional methods of measurement to achieve the most efficient operations. Discover the latest work measurement techniques at the one-day Best Practices in Managing Work Standards event.

The focus of this conference is on how work standards are documented and maintained and how supervisors/managers use these work standards to coach and counsel associates. This demonstrates what would be a best practice of any work standards program.

What is work measurement?
Work measurement is performed to develop the standard time to perform operations. Time standards have traditionally been defined as the time required by a typical operator working at a normal pace to perform a specified task using a prescribed method, with time for personal needs, fatigue and delay allowed. They are critical pieces of management information that apply to all kinds of work, including manufacturing, assembly and clerical. Managing this information is essential to the successful operation of organizations.

Work standards provide data for:

scheduling | staffing | line balancing | materials requirement planning | system simulation | wage payment | costing | employee evaluation | and much more
