    Which work measurement method is used primarily to measure operations that are repetitive, of short duration, and done at one workstation?

    • A.

      Time study

    • B.

      Work sampling

    • C.

      Queuing analysis

    • D.

      Operational audit

    Correct Answer
    A. Time study
    Explanation
    Time study is the correct answer because it is a work measurement method that is used primarily to measure operations that are repetitive, of short duration, and done at one workstation. Time study involves observing and timing the tasks involved in a particular job to determine the standard time required to complete it. This method is commonly used in industries to establish work standards, improve efficiency, and set fair compensation for workers. Work sampling, queuing analysis, and operational audit are not specifically designed for measuring repetitive, short-duration tasks at one workstation.

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    You would consider using the time study work measurement method to evaluate a work center that is

    • A.

      Nonrepetitive

    • B.

      Highly standardized

    • C.

      Varied in job completion from short to long durations

    • D.

      Multiple workstation dependent to complete the work

    Correct Answer
    B. Highly standardized
    Explanation
    The time study work measurement method would be suitable for evaluating a work center that is highly standardized because this method involves observing and timing the tasks performed by workers to determine the standard time required to complete each task. In a highly standardized work center, the tasks are likely to be repetitive and have a consistent method of completion, making it easier to accurately measure and analyze the time taken for each task. This method would not be as effective for nonrepetitive work centers or those with varied job completion durations or multiple workstations involved.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    The work sampling measurement method is most effective when work centers have all of the following except?

    • A.

      Narrow job responsibilities

    • B.

      Nonrepetitive or irregular work

    • C.

      Many different processes of work

    • D.

      Many workers in a relatively small area

    Correct Answer
    A. Narrow job responsibilities
    Explanation
    The work sampling measurement method is most effective when work centers have many different processes of work, nonrepetitive or irregular work, and many workers in a relatively small area. However, it is not effective when work centers have narrow job responsibilities. This is because work sampling requires observing a representative sample of work activities, and if the job responsibilities are narrow, there may not be enough variety in the tasks being performed to obtain an accurate representation of the overall work.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    You would consider using the work sampling measurement method to measure a work center that has

    • A.

      Very few workers

    • B.

      Standardizes work

    • C.

      Highly repetitive tasks

    • D.

      Many workers in a small area

    Correct Answer
    D. Many workers in a small area
    Explanation
    The work sampling measurement method would be suitable for measuring a work center with many workers in a small area because this method involves taking random observations of work activities over a period of time. With many workers in a small area, it would be easier to observe and record their activities at different intervals. This method is particularly effective for tasks that are highly repetitive and standardized, as it allows for a representative sampling of the work being performed. Additionally, the method is cost-effective and less intrusive compared to other measurement methods, making it ideal for a work center with limited resources.

    Rate this question:

      Field measurement

    • B.

      Minimum manning

    • C.

      Work sampling

    • D.

      Operational audit

    Correct Answer
    C. Work sampling
    Explanation
    Work sampling is a work measurement method that involves observing and recording the activities of workers over a period of time to determine the proportion of time spent on different tasks. This method may have limited application in a wartime environment because the chaotic and unpredictable nature of war may make it difficult to accurately observe and record worker activities. Additionally, the urgency and time-sensitive nature of wartime operations may not allow for the extended period of time needed to conduct work sampling.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    When conducting a work sampling study, what is the minimum number of usable days for the sampling period you are required to have?

    • A.

      10

    • B.

      15

    • C.

      20

    • D.

      21

    Correct Answer
    B. 15
    Explanation
    In a work sampling study, the minimum number of usable days for the sampling period should be 15. This is because a shorter sampling period may not provide a representative sample of the work being studied. With at least 15 usable days, the study can capture a more accurate picture of the tasks and activities performed by workers, allowing for better analysis and decision-making based on the results obtained.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    The economic desirability of work sampling is enhanced by

    • A.

      Decreasing the standby time

    • B.

      Having a representative work cycle

    • C.

      Having above 15 sampling days

    • D.

      Increasing the number of people being sampled

    Correct Answer
    D. Increasing the number of people being sampled
    Explanation
    Increasing the number of people being sampled enhances the economic desirability of work sampling because it allows for a more accurate representation of the overall work process. By sampling a larger number of individuals, the variability in work patterns and productivity levels can be captured, leading to more reliable data. This, in turn, helps in making informed decisions regarding resource allocation, process improvement, and workforce planning, ultimately leading to increased efficiency and cost-effectiveness.

This allows for efficient organization and coordination between the supplying and receiving activities. The other options, AFMS annex A, most efficient organization, and statement of conditions, do not specifically address the documentation of the tasks needed in support agreements.
