Work Measurement

Work Measurement

If you can answer "No" to any of the following questions, IET can help you!

  • Have we established realistic and flexible production standards?
  • Have we designed our indirect activities?
  • Can we explain the difference between current performance and 100% OEE?
  • Can we flex our labor requirements as volume and mix change?

We can provide work measurement utilizing the appropriate tools for the client's needs.

  • Time Studies to Determine Standards
  • Predetermined Time Standards
  • Methods Analysis
  • Line Balancing
  • Delay and Downtime Analysis
  • Overall Equipment Effectiveness (O.E.E.)
  • Work Sampling Studies
  • Direct and Indirect Labor Analysis
  • Labor Utilization
  • Standard Operating Procedures and Job Instructions
  • Ergonomic Evaluation
  • Production Variance Analysis
  • Capacity Analysis
Strategic Planning

Strategic Planning

If you can answer "No" to any of the following questions, IET can help you!

  • Do we know our strategic production flows?
  • Have we challenged the use of non-value added space?
  • Do we have a plan and measurement system for appropriate and timely performance improvement?

We can provide a complete project management package. This may include preparing and presenting reports to your customer, monitoring the progress of your suppliers, preparing and following up on action plans and general coordination of any of the project's activities.

  • Consolidation Evaluation
  • Make or Buy Analysis
  • Cost Analysis
  • Economic Modeling or Potential Costs, Savings and Justification
  • Project Management
  • CPM Diagrams and Action Plans
  • Value Stream Mapping
Production Planning

Production Planning

If you can answer "No" to any of the following questions, IET can help you!

  • Do we understand the implications of varied demand upon our constraints, space, and line balance?
  • Can we flex shifts and labor line-up to meet varied levels of production requirements?
  • Have we appropriately maximized asset utilization?

We can assist with your production planning needs in a variety of ways:

  • Strategic plant flow
  • Production mix strategy
  • Shift schedule design
  • Value added work content design
  • Goal-setting and feedback design
  • Expansion planning


If your production system is difficult to model in a spreadsheet because of the many variations or you need to get your entire production team on the same page regarding your new design, simulation may be the tool to help you.

Our custom simulation models can be used to evaluate various equipment arrangements, material handling alternatives, labor balancing, assembly line sequencing and more.

Common areas of analysis include the following:

  • Proposed Manufacturing System Evaluation
  • Production Bottleneck Evaluation
  • Labor Efficiency and Manning
  • Product Mix, Scrap Rates, Set-ups, Downtime, etc.

MES: Manufacturing Execution System

If you can answer "Yes" to any of the following questions, IET can help you!

  • Is it time to automate the production monitoring and feedback systems?
  • Will immediate performance feedback support the challenges of production supervision?
  • Is production loss documentation and feedback (scrap and rework) a challenge for the production team?

We partner with Nysus Solutions to provide the Manufacturing Execution System (MES). MES is a web application framed around quality assurance through providing automated work instructions. The MES system interfaces with PLCs and Databases in order to provide feedback to the operator even where feedback has not been readily available before.
