STUDY OF PROPERTY AND EQUIPMENT DIVISION SHOP-AMES,IOWA

THE RESULTS OF THIS STUDY SHOWED THE PERSONAL ACTIVITY RATING OF THE PROPERTY AND EQUIPMENT SHOP EMPLOYEES TO BE 77.4 PERCENT. THE PERCENT OF TOTAL TIME DEVOTED TO PRODUCTIVE WORK (EXCLUDING SUPPORTING WORK) WAS 64.6 PERCENT. A COMPARISON WITH THE SAME TYPE OF ACTIVITY IN ONE OF THE NATION'S LEADING MANUFACTURERS SHOW THAT THE PROPERTY AND EQUIPMENT SHOP EMPLOYEES HAD A HIGHER PERSONAL ACTIVITY RATING THAN THE MAINTENANCE EMPLOYEES OF THE MANUFACTURING COMPANY. ANALYSIS OF THESE DATA INDICATES THAT A FUTURE PERSONAL ACTIVITY RATING OF 89.3 PERCENT COULD BE OBTAINED. ACHIEVEMENT OF THIS GOAL IS DIRECTLY DEPENDENT UPON THE ADOPTION OF AN AGGRESSIVE PROGRAM WHICH RESULTS IN DECREASING THE TIME SPENT ON WALKING, PROCUREMENT OF TOOLS, AND MATERIALS, PREPARATION AND CLEANUP, AND NONPRODUCTIVE ELEMENTS. /AUTHOR/
