The World's Best Work Measurement Tool- Honda's "MOST"

Speaker: Chris Winder, Past Staff Engineer, Honda of America Mfg, Inc. 

Learn why work measurement is important to an organization.

Maynard Operation Sequence Technique (MOST) is a predetermined motion time system used primarily in industrial settings to set the standard time to accomplish a task.   MOST arrived in the 70’s and quickly replaced traditional Time Study and is many times faster to apply.

Since MOST is primarily concerned with the movement of objects it provides the practitioner opportunities to identify process improvements before investing in expensive tooling and fixtures. 

Once the best method has been determined by MOST, Standard Work becomes easy to develop.

Learn about the traditional work measurement techniques of time study and predetermined motion time systems.

  • Calculate the time that a task or set of tasks should take to be performed.
  • Apply predetermined time values to activities from memory or from a data card according to the rules of BasicMOST work measurement system.
  • Observe operator activities and write accurate method descriptions using the work measurement system.
  • Analyze work on the basis of moving objects using the BasicMOST work measurement system.
  • Identify work measurement activities in terms of the basic sequence models for manual work: General Move, Controlled Move, Tool Use and Equipment Use.
