TIME AND MOTION STUDY

a study of industrial functions or other complex jobs into their elemental steps, noting the time needed for each. Typical within the formative years of scientific control, such analyses might serve a multitude of various purposes, allowing an employer to establish performance goals, escalate productivity, rationalize pay scales and pricing policy, lessen employee fatigue, and prevent mishaps.

TIME AND MOTION STUDY: "Time and motion studies are interchangeable with motion and time studies."
