Time and motion study

AVIX offers a range of software tools for optimizing and improving production processes. One of the most useful of these is the Time and Motion study module (AVIX Method), which is based on the principles of classic time & motion study. AVIX allows for detailed studies of the work performed, identifying areas of inefficiency and waste, and making it visual and easy to improve productivity.

Using video cameras to record the process, AVIX Method helps analysing the data to identify waste. This allows companies to gain a more detailed and accurate understanding of how their production process works, leading to significant improvements in efficiency and productivity. In the end, reduced cycle times and increased throughput results in higher production volumes and reduced costs.

In addition to identifying inefficiencies, AVIX also helps optimizing workstations by improving ergonomics and reducing the risk of injury.



By combining video and a software, AVIX’s Standard Times provides companies with accurate and reliable data on the time required to perform specific tasks in the production process. This information is essential for optimizing and improving the production process and for achieving greater efficiency, productivity, and profitability.

The Standard Time analysis (PMTS, predetermined motion time system) works by analysing the movements and actions required to complete a particular task, and then calculating the time required based on established standards and benchmarks. This approach allows companies to gain detailed understanding of the work required to complete a specific job, and to identify areas for improvement and optimization.

To ensure accuracy and consistency when evaluating work methods and determining the time, AVIX uses several well-established standards widely recognized and accepted in the industry. These include the MTM-UAS, MTM-SAM, AVIX-basic motion times and stopwatch time study, which all provide reliable and objective data to help the user to make well-based decisions about how to improve the industrial processes.

AVIX also has the capabilities of deploying customized time systems, the use case could be a company that has developed an in-house time systems or using very unique time systems e.g. aerospace industry or similar.

In addition to providing accurate and reliable data on the time analysis, AVIX can also be used to create standardized work instructions, ensuring that all employees are following the same procedures and work methods. This leads to greater consistency and quality in the production process and reduces the risk of errors and defects. In AVIX this also creates a clear data-link between the defined process (standard) the time it takes to perform (time study) and the work instruction.

Overall, AVIX is an essential tool for companies looking to optimize their production processes and achieve greater efficiency, productivity, and profitability. By providing accurate and reliable data on the time required to perform specific tasks, AVIX enables companies to make well-based decisions about how to improve their operations and achieve their production goals. The time analysis also becomes a correct time base used for other calculations and are used throughout AVIX e.g. for line balancing purposes.

Having a correct time base, whether it is based on a PMTS or stopwatch analysis provides a number of benefits for businesses:

  • It allows for more accurate and reliable production planning, as well as scheduling of resources such as personnel and equipment. This can lead to better delivery times and increased customer satisfaction.
  • Having a correct time base help to identify areas of waste and inefficiency in the production process. By measuring the time required to complete specific tasks, companies can identify areas where improvements can be made, leading to increased productivity and profitability.
  • Having a correct time base plays a crucial role in quality control, as they provide a consistent and reliable benchmark measuring performance.
