Factors to be considered in using a Predetermined Time System 1. The application of PTS requires that the operation being measured be divided into basic motions. 2. At the time a PTS is first adopted by a company the level of performance as represented by the time standards produced by the system should be determined and adjustment made, if necessary, in order to match the company performance level. 3. Most pre-determined time systems do not include allowances so these are added as they would be in a time study

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
