Time study measures how long it takes an average worker to complete a task at a normal pace.
The basic purpose is to improve the work and to reduce waste.

·         Analysis techniques:-
Manufacturing management and engineering students are being prepared to design work stations, develop efficient  and effective work methods, establish time standards, balance assembly lines, estimate labor costs, develop effective tooling, select proper equipment, and layout manufacturing facilities.

How it works?
  • establish the standard job method
  • break down the job into elements
  • study the job 
  • rate the worker's performance 
  • compute the average time 
  • compute the normal time 
This techniques helps 
  • T&M studies can be effective for performance evaluations.
  • T&M can be used for planning purposes in order to predict the level of output that may be achieved.
  • T & M studies can be used to uncover problems and create solutions.
  • T & M studies can be used for time cost analysis.

Reckitt Benckiser  also follow this techniques to short out the problem from his distribution channel .
 Reckitt Benckiser want to improve his distribution channel for that they started study.

  • activities at the outlet with the owner
  •  waiting time 
  •  order time 
  •  net rate calculation time 
  •  Selling negotiation time 
  • cash collection ,etc
  • activities in the outlet on shop floor
  • activities on a move
