To learn how to evaluate work cycles, in a perspective of operations eficiency and productivity. To learn how to define operations normal time, standard time and work allowances. To know how to evaluate micromotions, and value-added activities. To learn how to structure a line production flow and cell production flow. To learn how to define a process mapping in order to optimize industrial or service processes.
Not applied. Students must attend of at least 90% of the lectures (attendance registrar is provided)
1. Introduction to labor legislation2. Discussion of different technologies installed in industrial units: process, bulk, batch and unitary.3. Time study, as a tool for the evaluation and optimization of industrials activities: the time study methodology. Operator activity factor. Activity allowances. Observed, normal and standard time.4. Man-machine cycles, as a methodology of work cycle evaluation, involving operator - equipment interaction.5. Operators pluriocupation, as a methodology of work cycle evaluation, involving the interaction between an operator and several equipments.
6. Predetermined Time Systems, as a methodology of microscopic evaluation of upper limb movements: MTM-1 system
7. Line production flow, regarding the competitive advantage in relation to other forms of production flow; cycle time, frequency, idle time and operations synchronization; line dimensioning techniques and performance evaluation.
8. Cell production flow: competitive advantage and strategic objectives related to its implementation; automatic, semi- automatic and intensive manual work cells; dimensioning techniques.
9. Human Factors in industrial production: task dimensioning and the implications in workers psychological state; workstation redimensioning techniques; individual workstations and work groups; different functional structures at operational level and its connection to vertical and horizontal differentiation, and to communication effectiveness.
10. Process mapping of industrial or service processes
