Maynard Operation Sequence Techniques (EMS108)

06 March 2017 - 09 March 2017

Many companies today realize the importance of good work systems and organized management that leads to better management, decision making and quality improvement. At the same time, productivity is becoming more and more difficult to achieve and manage. The demands of the engineers and analysts are continuously rising in view of the rapidly changing market places and competition world-wide. This has made it imperative for organizations to upgrade and keep pace with progress.

However, what has not changed much is the ability of the engineers and analyst to respond well to these rising demands and how they would cope with greater decision-making requirements. Many engineers and analysts are technically competent but have been slow in responding to the needs for better organized work processes involving people, machine and workflow. This is because many organizations have not used the right intelligent decision making tool to engineer work and processes. With MOST training, the engineers and analysts will become more productive. They will speed less on data collection and will be able to transform the work processes for improvements in a much shorter time. In this way, cost improvements can be made at an early stage rather than allowing costly processes to run without making efforts for improvements.

Maynard Operation Sequence Techniques (MOST) is a breakthrough work measurement technique that allows a greater variety of work (both repetitive and non-repetitive) for manufacturing, engineering to administrative service activities to be measured quickly with ease and accuracy. This enable today’s engineers and analysts to expose wastes and unproductive methods of work quickly and rectify problems at the workplace as they arise at the design stage. A brief description of what MOST can do for your organization includes: accurate work standard, capacity analysis and manpower planning, workplace design and job activity analysis for re-organization and allocation for work balancing, cost estimating for existing and new processes etc.

This 4-day international certification program provides the participating companies MOST® proprietary data which is the “bolts & nuts” of process design. Participants will be qualified and certified by our intensive training to:
• Capture all workflow activities using systematic and descriptive workflow data-block for value adding, value engineering and methods engineering analysis
• Develop methods and work standards in advance of production for capacity planning, workplace layout design and manning analysis
• Improve material handling and workflow to reduce non-value-adding time through process design and process flow analysis
• Provide an advanced technique to systematically describe all set-up activities in detail (methods & time) so that Cycle Time reduction can be achieved
• Enhance the capability of your management staff to measure work in production, maintenance, engineering, assembly and service support activities such as administration and clerical work
