Bringing the Time Study to Your Facility: Benefits of the Acción Method

Mar 21 2020

Efficiency is the name of the game in manufacturing and production, and for good reason. Every minute matters when it comes to staying ahead of the competition and keeping costs low, but certainly not at the expense of accuracy and quality work.

That’s why companies have implemented Frederick Winslow Taylor’s immortal time study practice over the last century. The tools used in time studies have evolved over the years, but managers can still reap countless benefits from the time-tested practice. In fact, our team at Acción Performance starts each partnership by bringing a time study to our clients’ facilities. We believe that investing in a time study upfront creates several benefits for our partner companies, and today we’re explaining those benefits and how they can help your company reach its goals faster.

Creates Standardized Production Times

We want to get to know each companies’ production process and facility from the get-go, and performing a time study allows us to understand the current workflow while creating standardized production times. This data is later used to test our own accuracy down the road.

Improved Quality, Performance, and Productivity

Our engineers use data from the time study to take a closer look at how we can further improve your company’s quality, performance, and productivity. We don’t want to just continue doing what’s worked for you in the past, but instead use the data to help further streamline and improve your tested processes.

Eliminates Waste

Optimizing your production process requires pinpointing and eliminating waste. Whether your waste is related to product accuracy or too many touches in your assembly line, our time study engineers are trained to look for the areas that are costing your business time and money. We propose practical ways to remove excess in your production process without sacrificing quality.

Increased Trust

Handing over the keys to your manufacturing and production process isn’t easy, and at Acciòn Performance we believe that trust is the foundation of our partnerships. Since we act as an extension of your organization, the time study we perform is used to help us fully understand your facility and align our operations and goals with yours.

Bringing a time study to your facility is just one of the ways our team at Acción designs managed labor solutions that achieve operation objectives, allowing you to focus on core business strategies. We pride ourselves in providing support for small and medium businesses by helping them remain agile in an ever-changing supply chain. We replace traditional staffing models with advanced labor solutions that execute daily operational tasks with precision.
