Work Measurements is used to develop standard times needed to perform operations. Time standards have traditionally been defined as the time required by an average skilled operator, working at a normal pace, to perform a specified task using a prescribed method, allowing time for personal needs, fatigue, and delay. There are three major methods to measure work:  Estimation, Direct Observation and Measurement, and Predetermined Time Systems. Typical work measurement applications include stopwatch study, work sampling study, and MODAPTS (Modular Arrangement of Predetermined Time Standards).  Work Measurement provides essential data for the management of all organizations.  Organizations elect to use predetermined time systems to provide information to assist with management and operations of the organization.
