System: MTM-1: Methods-Time Measurement (MTM-1) is a procedure which analyzes any manual operation or method into the Basic Motions required to perform it, and assigns to each motion a predetermined time standard, which is determined by the Influencing Factors under which it is made. MTM-1 is used for Process Type 1 activities, where the following application conditions exist:

  • production with a very high degree of repetition
  • short cycle work processes
  • detail-designed processes
  • work instructions with precise descriptions of methods
  • deviations in individual operator methods must be minimized

Course: This 10-day course includes coverage of the theory and principles of MTM-1; laboratory problems illustrating its principle and use; and a thorough practice in the analysis of Industrial and business operations. BlueCard® certification in MTM-1 will be issued to those that successfully complete the course.
