Eric Kline IE 131 Chapters 14, 15, 16, 17, 19, 20, 21, 27, 28, 11 Review Questions Chapter 14 Review: Predetermined Motion Time Systems 14.1 Define predetermined motion time system: A database of basic motion elements and their associated normal time values, together with a set of procedures for applying the data to analyze manual tasks and establish standard times for the tasks. 14.2 What are the steps in applying a predetermined motion time system? Synthesize the method, Retrieve the normal time values for each motion element, evaluate the method to make improvements, and apply allowances to determine the standard time. 14.3 What is the difference between a first-level PMTS and a higher-level PMTS? First-level PMTS systems are more detailed where higher-level PMTS systems are very simplified 14.4 What is a motion aggregate in a higher-level PMTS? A combination of two or more first-level PMTS aggregates. Example: combine “reach” and “grasp” to form “get”. 14.5 Compare the advantages of a higher-level PMTS and a first-level PMTS: First-level PMTS: more accurate, takes more time to set standard, highly repetitive, only short cycles, basic motions, very detailed, very flexible. Higher-level PMTS: less accurate, less time to set standard, repetitive or batch, longer cycle times ok, aggregates of basic motion, less detailed, less flexible. 14.6 What is the unit of time used in methods-time measurement? TMU(time measurement unit): 1 TMU = 0.00001 hr = 0.0006 min = 0.036 sec 14.7 What does the acronym MOST stand for? Maynard Operation Sequence Technique 14.8 What is the primary focus of MOST in terms of type of work activity? The movement of objects 14.9 What are the motion aggregates in MOST called? Activity sequence models. 14.10 What is the difference between General Move and Controlled Move in MOST? General move is free motion where as controlled move is restricted. Ex: controlled move- moving a lever. Page 1 of 15

A database of normal time values usually organized by work elements, that can b e used to establish time standards for tasks composed of work elements similar to those in the database. 15.2 Which work measurement techniques should be used as the source of the data in a standard data system if accuracy of the standards is important? Any other. 15.3 What are the general characteristics and requirements of work situations for which a standard data system is most suited? Less accurate standard data systems. 15.4 Identify the steps in using a standard data system: Analyze the new task and divide it into work elements, Access database to determine normal times of work elements, add element normal times to obtain task normal time, computer standard times for setup and production cycle. 15.5 What is the database formats commonly used in a standard data system?
