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”.
MTM is a Work Measurement system which does not require the use of a Stop Watch or Time Study (Time and Motion) and also negates the need for Pace Rating. When used on its own, or with Leanor Six Sigma it is a powerful System for Process Design, Tooling Design and Layout Design.
It is also used for Process Improvement, Productivity Improvement, Labour Utilisationand OEE calculations.
