Work study consists of time studies and work measurement (time and motion). A time and motion study is a business efficiency technique combining the Time Study work with the Motion Study work. It is a major part of scientific management.
BIECON staff is equipped with advanced tools and techniques to measure the two components. This includes determining the standard time for completion of a task. This is normally used to determine labour complements, planning and scheduling of work, to determine the production capacity of a process and to design or redesign a process. The work study component usually gives a good and valuable insight into the performance of a system or process. Early “wins” during the project evaluation phase is a deliverable of these studies.
