Waite b. Synthetic rating evaluates operation rate from predetermined time values. {a} lemental times are based on previous time studies which have been proven to be accurate.
d. Work measurement is analysis and work methods is design.
Te. Disadvantage of the continuous method of watch recording is that it can not immediater tell
elemental time.
T f. Setting the time standards using the predeterminedtime system is based on elemental
descriptions and synthesized time variables. ating scales provide an integrated summary of physical workload, from the perspective of the
operator. /( h. Element times of 0.04 min is a short element and 0.25 min is a reasonable one ’C i. Time study for a Noncyclic work should be performed using continuous timing method Predetermined time systems enable determination of standard times for new operations for whom

worker doing light job in a very good environmental and working conditions). Time is recorded in hundredths of a minute and the Continuous Method of timekeeping was utilized in the study. A) Calculate standard time given that performance rating was good for skill, poor for effort,
good for conditions, and fair for consistency. (12 points) B) Elements 6 and 7 are noncyclic elements. How will the averages of these elements be
treated in determining the standard time for the task as a whole? (3 points) C) When Element 2 in Cycle 4 was observed, the technician failed to observer the ending time
