Specific course information

This course presents the fundamentals of the studies of labor, considering the methods and their measurement (times) founded on functions and processes towards the improvement of productivity in public and private organizations. From the historical development of the studies of labor and considering the importance of productivity on modern competitiveness, students will learn to devise manuals of functions and procedures, to study and analyze workloads and to establish real times and standard times. Also, students will learn to analyze problems in organizations from a process perspective, starting with their characterization to end up with proposals for improvement.

Specific goals of the course

Learning objectives:
  • To identify the time studies by Taylor and the methods studies by Gilbreth.
  • To identify the concepts of classical organization, labor extension, high-efficiency groups.
  • To identify the concepts of assignment, function, task, procedure, occupational analysis, manual of functions and procedures.
  • To identify the concept of workload, measurement of workloads, subjective standards and statistical standards.
  • To identify the concept of process, classes of processes, process components, times, costs, efficiency and effectiveness indicators.
  • To identify and apply methodologies to prioritize and rank processes, MICMAC.
  • To define the components of processes.
