    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).

    Equations:

    NT (normalized Time)
    = ET (Elemental Time)
    x RF (Rating Factor)

    Standard Time = ∑NT (normalized Time) x (1 + PR&D)

    (see chart in attached file)
