Methods Time Measurement 2 (MTM-2) (EMS110)

24 April 2017 - 28 April 2017

OBJECTIVES
This course is designed to train practitioner to apply MTM-2 to develop improved methods, workplace layout, better tools and fixtures to facilitate assembly operations.

Candidates will be trained to a high level of proficiency in developing reliable and accurate time standards. The training also imparts expertise in the applications of MTM-2 to improve process and operational management.

As a method engineering technique, MTM-2 provides a method of translating the work activities into detailed motion sequences.  This allows the engineer / analyst to describe specifically the method orientation the ways the parts are assembled and how the tools should be used to complete the sub-process activity.  This detailed analysis of methods often leads to better work methods for time reduction and quality processes.  MTM-2 will also provide the time required for each corresponding methods employed.  Thereby, providing the necessary information to quantify the steps taken for process changes and to allow cost control to be engineered at every process operation and determining which part of the work could be performed best by low cost automation.

The knowledge gained at the 5-day practitioner course would also equip the candidate with the ability to set-up time data for cost-estimating of new products and services before production starts.  Other useful applications of MTM-2 include operative training development, workplace layout design and cycle-time management for achieving kanban requirements.

MTM-2 provides the engineers and supervisors with design and measurement tools to bring about changes through improvement to equipment design, product design, tooling design, workplace design as well as the method of work.  It is a powerful method engineering and methods correction tool that a process engineer MUST possess.

Without MTM-2 know-how, a process engineer or supervisor cannot perform his function to optimize production methods and workflow.  He can only guess or estimate but cannot design a good working system.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND

All personnel who are directly involved in developing standards for both service and manufacturing areas. It is also suitable to process / manufacturing engineers and analysts who are entrusted with the responsibility for industrial engineering, process redesign and O & M work. Jigs and Tooling designers and product equipment designers will find this course value-add to their know-how

SAYING OF OHNO
Moving about quite a bit does not mean working.  To work means to let the process move forward and to complete a job. In work there is very little waste and only high efficiency. Managers and foremen must endeavour to transform a mere motion (ugoki) into work (hataraki)
