Does anyone have any recommendations for any time study software, whether free or not?

Thank you,

I attached a simple Standard Work excel sheet. It also contains an Operator Balance chart.

Hope this helps.

Kevin's excel sheet is much better than the one I was planning on sending you. I made it my self and obviously it depends on what you need to do with it.
Ihave not seen a software as such that would help you in time study.
If you find anything, I would really like to know what it is.
Good luck

Kevin,

Could you possibly post one of these sheets filled out? I think it would help me to understand the format. It looks like a useful spread sheet though.

There are currently three time study software programs available. The prices start at $995.00.
QueTech, Timer Pro and Laubrass, They all work using a pda (Palm or Windows).
Do a web search for time study software & they will come up. Hope this helps.

I think you are asking about some Time estimation softwares.

If yes, very popular one is the MOST, (Maynards Operations Sequence Technique)You need to be a MOST trained person in order to use that technique. They do have a S/w too to estimate standard times for various applications

Otherwise, there are some simple s/w available in the net. I remember having seen some trial wares, that are simple and easy to use.

Kevin,

There appear to be a few bugs in your macros. I think you added a column so some of the cell references for Takt.value are off.

I have a question here:

when calculating cycle time, whether we need add value-added and non value-added time together or not?

Hi Dale,
Yes, Cycle Time = VA + NVA.
Also, for all those who are keen to know about the Standard work templates etc, please read the Productivity Press publication " Standard Work for Operators". It has fantastic stuff in it, which is very simple for anyone to understand.
Good Luck,

If it is just to take operator cycle time I prefer to go to the gemba and do it on paper with a stopwatch.

What do you want to do? There is tremendous differences in applying time study to improve existing work versus methods that are used to estimate work. Simply put: do you want to estimate work for pricing and quotes, or do you want to improve the current work?

Excellent! i was hoping that i didnt have to scroll all the way thru this thread to find this answer. There's something more to be learned when putting pencil to paper on the shopfloor.
