The industrial engineer for an ice cream chain is performing a time study to determine the standard time for serving sundaes to customers. He times 10 cycles of the task and records the observations on the table below:
The engineer rated the pace of elements 1 and 4 (pick up cup, and hand to customer) at 100%, and the other 2 elements at 90%. The PR&D (personal, rest, and delay) allowance is 13%.
Compute the standard of the task (servicing sundae).
NT (normalized Time)
= ET (Elemental Time)
x RF (Rating Factor)
Standard Time = ∑NT (normalized Time) x (1 + PR&D)
