Work Study

Work study uses techniques like method study and work measurement to understand human work potential in terms of time spend on completing a task, looking at ways to make the task simpler and easy, as to increase productivity and efficiency. Work study is field used to finding ways of increasing on job performance, optimum usage of plant and machinery, standardization of work methods, etc. Therefore, objectives of work study are as follows:

- Scientific and controlled analysis of existing available methods of executing a task.
- Measuring performance of mentally and the physically qualified workers, establishing it as standard for performance measurement.
- Optimum utilization of workers, plant, machinery and other resources at minimum cost.
- Improved productivity and enhance worker mood.
- Increasing efficiency of organization.

For an organization, productivity can be increased over a period of time, if workers are efficient and are focused. Therefore, advantages of work study are as follows:
