The pilot schemes for use of work study for railway civil engineering maintenance are summarized from a paper presented to the Institution of Civil Engineers. In 1956, permanent-way length-gang maintenance was applied to eight inspectors' sections, and also to steelwork fabrication in the civil engineering workshops, to bridge and station repairs and to painting on the Southern Region. The advantages to both management and staff of work-study techniques include reduced costs, better-quality work, more consistent work loading, higher pay, shorter hours and better management and working conditions.
