Problem Statement Time and motion study is the important aspect in business to determine the production rate. Another factor’s that effect the production rate is raw material, operation cost, work force and others. All this factors will effect differently to each other. Even though, time is the most influence element this rate. Whether the motion time or the production rate, this element is taken care in any transaction in a company. In this study, the rice company is settling down the grading and packaging process. It involved both the machine and manpower. In the process of manpower has no time standard stated because as we know, manpower process will be influence by many factors. Not as the machine that had been set and produced as what we wish to. When there is no time standard, any task could be finished out of planned. In this study, the process that involved manpower in packaging process is determined and studied. While, a time standard is determined to know the time needed the process could be finished. In business, both of these elements are important to execute the maximum profitable production rate. Hence, with the application of Time and Motion Study the changes and improvement could be seen especially in cost and production matter. Research Objective
he important thing in order to determine the success and performance of a company. This happen because, time is the measurement tools the level of company’s performance. The measurement of the product or service successful would be known through the time study and time standard by work sampling and workers complaint .
