Lean Manufacturing
Manufacturing companies are at the forefront of Lean principles, now in a competitive global economy, it is more important than ever for manufacturing companies to minimize waste and maximize time spent on value-adding activities. Knowing where time is spent is the first step, and that is what UMT Plus does.
The importance of work measurement
Setting standards and performance ratings can enable continuous improvement in any organization, however, these standards need to be continually tested. Time studies and work sampling studies are the best way to see where time is being spent and measure non-value-adding activities to identify wasted time.
