Germany Creates Transparency: 3,000 Individual Calculations in the Test Year Alone
Knowing what production can actually achieve – i.e. how many items can be produced using a certain number of employees, how much time needs to be planned for a certain activity and what potential is lying dormant – is absolutely essential, both at large corporations and at small and medium-sized enterprises. However, introducing a modern productivity management system is (still) not an issue for many medium-sized companies; as a result, they are failing to capitalize on improvement potential and, in the end, their competitiveness. They say that determining solid, work-related time data is too complicated, too long-winded and, above all, too expensive.
However, even corporations with far fewer resources and expertise in industrial engineering can gain transparency in their production now – by using MTM-EasyTime, the first cloud-based software solution for determining standard times.
Price and quotation calculations
MTM-EasyTime can be used anywhere where it is necessary to create transparency simply, quickly and cheaply without any specific MTM training or knowledge and also identify optimization potential. Operators use MTM-EasyTime to calculate production times, but also to determine prices and quotations or as an internal benchmarking tool. The fact that the software has been developed on the basis of the MTM standard gives users additional certainty – the certainty of an internationally recognized standard: “Approved by MTM.”
Further features included
More than 400 users have already registered during the test phase and have completed almost 3,000 individual calculations. The feedback from the users, comments on its usability and suggestions regarding additional functions have been included in the regular updates during the past few months. More features will be available for users from 1 January 2020, the start date when the service needs to be paid for. They include, for example, work or worker instructions as a PDF file and a TARGET/ACTUAL comparison.
Those who are registered as test users do not need to enter their data again. All they have to do from 1 January 2020 onwards is to select the type of access that they require at the online store; this includes one month free of charge.
In general terms, it is possible to book the following types of access to the MTM-EasyTime software at www.mtm-easy.com:
- 1 month free of charge
- 1 month: EUR 99.00
- 1 year: EUR 990.00
MTM-EasyDesign and MTM-EasyErgonomics
MTM-EasyTime is the first product in the MTM-Easy family. The MTM Software Center is already working on broadening the program – e.g. integrating logistics data and cloud-based solutions for design work (MTM-EasyDesign) or work design that takes into consideration ergonomic issues (MTM-EasyErgonomics). Training concepts and demonstrators, which communicate the benefits of TARGET or planning times for production, are also being developed in conjunction with the Enterprise Resource Planning Center at RWTH Aachen University.
