Description

Conducting time studies is often an essential activity for entry-level industrial engineers. In this paper, we will review the philosophy and methods for conducting time studies as taught in several industrial engineering courses in our curriculum. We will compare these methods to the actual implementation of a time study in a local manufacturing facility. The Mercer University faculty who are implementing the time study will describe the progress on their time study project and offer insights on theory versus practice.
