THANK YOU
We want to thank everyone in the IMA membership for their continued support and
dedication to the MODAPTS® program, we have been very busy in making changes
to the program to further educate you in the MODAPTS® System and we believe
that the changes to the Yellow, Green, and Black Belt programs have accomplished
that and we will continue to further improve our programs to address your needs.
George Miko, Founder and Vice-President of Communications
As Henry Ford was once asked about the development of the automobile, “If I had
asked people what they wanted, they would have asked for faster horses.”
This statement relays the importance of innovation, all we do, and what the Board of
Directors have provided the membership to move forward in this every changing world
of ours, but unlike Mr. Ford we rely on the communications between the Board and our
members to further improve our knowledge and expertise in the MODAPTS® system.

Predetermined time
standards (PTS) Helping
Production Planning
by Ed Eisbrenner
RETURN TO TABLE OF CONTENTS
...continued on next page
I
n the work measurement field, MODAPTS® is one of several predetermined time
systems; however, it is the fastest growing and easiest to use system in the world.
Other PTS include MTM, MOST, Mini MOST, Work Factor, and Master Standard Data.
These are all sophisticated systems for developing “production standards.” Developing
a production standard is similar to setting a goal, or a benchmark. The purpose of which
is to measure progress. For example, a goal might be to reduce direct or indirect labor
by .10 hours per unit, or reduce overtime to 5%. Using periodic reports, management
can determine whether or not the goal is being reached.
Production Standards
Production standards are goals, calculated for the 100%,
or normal employee, experienced in performing the
process and working a comfortable work pace. When
the goal is exceeded an “atta-boy” is often awarded
and employees are recognized for their efforts. Not
meeting set goals based on capacity planning usually
ends up with management getting involved, not always
a pleasant event.
As such, typical production standard might be expressed
as .329 minutes/piece. Some organizations, however,
might prefer to use hours instead of minutes. Others
prefer to use 100 pieces instead of 1 piece as their unit
of measure. It makes no difference at all how the standard is expressed; just keep in
mind; a production standard has a unit of time and a unit of production.
Production standards are developed around body parts used, not on performance
...continued on next page
rated stopwatch observations which is a slow process for the calculation of standards.
Stopwatches are not required when using a predetermined time system. All that is
necessary is to write down the motions required of the employee. The time values
for each motion are taken from a table of predetermined times. When analysts in an
organization use the same set of data, the variation is minimized. With all analysts
using the same data the consistency of standards is improved.
Predetermined Time-Standards = Predictability, Productivity, Profit
In the world economy all business depends on accountability, reputation and quality establishing pre-determined time-standards for frequently repeated manual tasks has
become more important than ever for reliably predicting your plant’s manufacturing
capacity.
Tightly managed time-schedules can lead to expanded profits when exact timing, labor
costs and precise calculations for deliveries can be relied on.
When expanding plant capacity to meet your customer needs is the issue - breaking
down labor activity into predictable and precise cost-effective components becomes
necessary. When working to establish dependable plant capacity planning estimates,
productivity, profit or loss, having access to reliable and objective work measurement
data is key. Determining if your plant capacity can be expanded even more by utilizing
a pre-determined time standard is often worth the time to investigate.

What does
Donald Trump &
work measurement
have to do with
anything?
by Ed Eisbrenner
RETURN TO TABLE OF CONTENTS
...continued on next page
I
n Donald Trump’s first book, “The Art of the Deal” he discusses the
importance of getting the job “done right the first time.” This is
a fundamental key he proved with his success when building his
skyscrapers.
Downtime and cost overruns can ruin you. This truth rang totally
clear in his book and it becomes crystal clear that this is also how
the manufacturing industry succeeds - after all, skyscrapers cannot
be built without making broad use of parts manufactured and
assembled by the manufacturing industry.
What Donald Trump understands - is exactly how important
efficiency and smooth order-flow is for effective delivery in a timely
manner - of any part or other assembled material resource that
might be needed.
The manufacturing industry isn’t any different when it comes to efficiency and effective
use of resources and labor.
How To Expand Efficiency During the Manufacturing Process
Work measurement has everything to do with efficiency. Measuring every aspect of the
manufacturing and assembly process is the only way to determine if your efficiency
levels are as fine-tuned as they can be.
Getting it “done right the first time” has everything to do with prevention of downtime
and cost over-runs. As Mr. Trump points out - controlling and expanding your efficiencies
are the direct result of predetermining precise timing for absolutely every element of
the manufacturing-and-assembly process.
Trump tells the story of how he personally found the level of the cement in the side

walk outside one of his buildings to be off by ¼”. He followed up and held the contractor
accountable for the difference. That is discipline. That paying attention to the details.
As work measurement engineer’s it is our responsibility to know precisely how long
it takes for every step, every element, and every movement required to assemble a
part on an assembly line, transport the part thru the plant, and even to fill a transport
truck. This is work measurement. Performing at a world class level is paying attention
to details. Just as Donald Trump pays attention to the details in building skyscrapers,
it is just as essential for engineers as understanding the most efficient ergonomicallysensitive approach to part assembly, packaging and delivery.
Each of these efficiencies is able to be exactly-calculated using predetermined time
standards. Labor tasks of any kind can be streamlined and calculated using software for
the most precise predictions making deliveries, assembly runs and project completions
with astounding accuracy. Keep in mind, there are also limitations to using predetermined
time systems.
Profits Increase and Critical Reputations Are Maintained
There is broad availability for utilizing predetermined time standards for work
measurement or even modular applications of predetermined time standards - making
it possible to save enormous amounts time when considering the effects of unexpected
down times and cost over-runs.
Operations managers actually have few excuses for not training and applying these
efficiencies. Work measurement is a science. It delivers exact information that provides
the ability to engage precise timing for projects and deliveries within any industry
where human labor is utilized.
With the delivery of high tech system that expanded the electronics assembly markets -
...continued on next page
utilization of predetermined time standards has helped close the gap between predicting
a projects completion time and repeatedly meeting schedules with precision.
Every successful company is reputation dependent, and dependability, quality-control
and delivery timing are all critically tied to labor efficiency and prevention of cost overruns.
Position Your Company: Market Dominance Through Reputation
Generating a culture of excellence, heightened market competition and quality employee
relations - is the fastest road to market dominance. When your company is one that
attracts and retains employees who truly care about the success or failure of their
workplace - you will know you have arrived in that coveted position. The best of the
best talented people want to work for Donald Trump.
Positioning your company for this level of success has everything to do with applying
the sciences available today for accurately-predicting precisely how long any order will
take to get from order placed - to a high-quality product delivered.
Are predetermined time systems right for your company?
Are you interested in improving their assembly line productivity?
Do you use PTS in your facility? Are you correctly using your
PTS? Are you considering using PTS vs. a stop watch for setting
production standards? Is a PTS right for your organization and
culture to determine with precision exactly what the reasonable
amount of time is required to complete any defined task by any
typical operator or laborer?
