Time and motion study is a work measurement technique for recording the times of performing a certain specific job or its elements carried out under specified conditions. Time study is a direct and continuous observation of a task, using a timekeeping device (e.g., decimal minute stopwatch, computer-assisted electronic stopwatch, and videotape camera) to record the time taken to accomplish a task. Motion studies are performed to eliminate waste. Under this project two sites are selected for time and motion study considering ten selected activities on field for time and motion study. Data will be collected for all activities under time study on field using stop watch and average time will be estimated and then further analysis under motion study to determine the optimum time required for performing selected operations and identify the extra time consumed on site. The analysis result will show that almost all the activities consumed more time more than what is required for actual work. The further future investigation and observations on field explore some reasons for extra time consumption which included inadequate material handling, ineffective method of work, poor planning of inventory poor layout and utilization of space. If these factors are taken into consideration the activities time can be brought nearer to ideal time requires.
