Motion and time study analysis of wooden locally manufactured duplicating machines

M. Akpan

Abstract


Studies were carried out on time-and-motion-economy of wooden locally manufactured duplicating machines. Two versions of the machine were used for the study, viz: standard version and semi-mechanized version. Working with both auxiliary and routine operations, the standard duplicator produced printed paper at an average time of 74.1 seconds, while the semi-mechanized duplicator recorded an average time of 54.3 seconds. Eliminating all auxiliary operations associated with the semi-mechanized machine, 6.92 seconds was achieved as the standard time for one duplicating process.



Keywords: Duplicating machine, time-and-motion-economy, semi-mechanized, standard, wooden.
