What is MTM?
MTM is an abbreviation for Methods Time Measurement. Methods time means that the time required to execute a particular task depends on the method selected for the activity.
"The method determines the time!"
Today, MTM is much more. MTM is an instrument for describing, structuring, designing and planning work systems using defined process building blocks, resulting in a standard for high-capacity production systems.
It can be used everywhere performance-oriented human work has to be planned, organized and executed. MTM applications, therefore, can be found in production, logistics and maintenance as well as in administration or in the service sector.
Today, MTM is the most common method of predetermined times in the world, thus forming a uniform planning and performance standard for every type of company.
MTM- RIGHT FROM THE START
Your MTM Association Needs You
The UK MTM Association is seeking to recruit replacements for the current three directors. Advancing years lead us to believe that if the use of PMTS and MTM in particular is to continue in the 21st century, a new group is needed to continue the story.
This is not an arduous task but it requires a commitment of usually three days per year to attend board meetings, for which we pay some expenses, and a little additional work at other time. One director is a member of the IMD, International MTM Directorate, and is required to attend meetings world-wide, at no cost to themselves.
The greatest load falls on the person elected Company Secretary and Finance Director, or Treasurer, but even this is not too much.
Further, we need more instructors to continue our training activities at weekends, to suit all persons, please contact us for more details
Believe it or not, training in UAS and other MTM techniques still continues within the UK, there being some 40 persons becoming practitioners this year, having participated in several of our courses. Futher details of the Association can be obtained via this web site.
