MOST® Technique

The MOST® technique

With MOST® you can create accurate time data in virtually every business sector.
MOST® (Maynard Operation Sequence Technique) is a work measurement technique that’s probably the fastest and most effective work measurement technique available.

A progression of MTM, MOST® is a powerful analytical tool which can be applied to any type of manual activity for which a method can be defined and described. The technique can be used effectively for the occasional assessment of work content or as a corporate measurement system to create structured time standards.

What is MOST® all about?

26 letters, 19 basic motions
Think how much is written in English (novels, editorial, technical and legal publications etc) – every item is different in some way, yet they all involve combinations of the same 26 letters of the alphabet.

Consider also how many different jobs and activities there are. In reality they are all just combinations of 19 basic motions, which are used to perform a task. As productivity specialists we can use these 19 basic motions to structure an amazingly comprehensive database of times for the activities in your specific business.

It’s Lean

It is a well proven system which can be applied very quickly, more accurately and with more consistency than other work measurement techniques – a truly Lean tool. The MOST® technique is faster and ensures a much more detailed method description than Time Study making it an ideal method development tool.

With the detailed description which establishes the time needed to perform an activity, MOST® is a clear pointer to where a method can be improved. It provides traceable and concise time calculations that indicate the opportunities for saving time, money and human effort.

Productivity Pointer

Determining accurate work content is at the heart of assessing performance. We define work content as being the time content of an activity or task.
