Methods-Time Measurement (MTM) is the most established of all pre-determined motion-time systems (PMTS). The system was born in the USA and since its publication in 1948, it is now a worldwide phenomenon. The UK MTM Association was founded in 1964, and as all other National Associations, seeks to uphold the professional standards of training and research, which was the vision of Mike Maynard, who was the father of MTM. It was he who coined the phrase “MTM - First Time Right”!
Independent academic verification of all MTM data provides absolute confidence in its application.
MTM eliminates the need for the stopwatch and the often argumentative, subjective rating of operator performance.
MTM certification courses in all systems are regularly organised by the UK Association, at fees, which reflect the Association’s “not-for-profit” constitution.
The International MTM Directorate (IMD) controls the standards of training and all certification.
