Case Study 8-06594
The training provided by IET paved the way for faster implementation of assembly line work assignment changes by including production supervisors in the process.
An assembly plant for a domestic manufacturer of cars and trucks.
Being a professional, industrial engineering firm, IET was familiar with several predetermined time study systems including MODAPTS®. IET leveraged its knowledge of time study and experience with MODAPTS® to design a three-day training program for production supervisors. The course utilized lecture and self-study materials, supplemental in-class exercises, and a certification exam that emphasized the practical application of the tool to measure time requirements.
Over thirty production supervisors and managers participated in the training sessions with 95% earning certification. Several supervisors commented that they now felt qualified to review and question the standards being developed by the industrial engineers.
