With the advent of new technologies, some companies have moved away from using work standards— and performance has suffered. Work measurement is no longer just a time study. For next generation companies, work measurement has become a knowledge-centered activity providing complete knowledge of the human-process interface. Return to the roots of managing business processes. Learn the importance of using work standards and discover why they are key elements of the management information system necessary for process improvements and lean manufacturing.
