Time and Motion Study

Study on the efforts which utilize minimum effective time for a particular task. And how to use time effectively for doing work and undoing unnecessary activities. It is particularly use in Business efficiency for the good results.

For example in a study, reserchers (Abraham B. Bergman M.D. et al.) study how a paediatrician spend his time and work during practice.

(J. S. MCDONALD et al.) Through time and motion study, researchers have found that anaesthetist's can increase their working efficiency by sensible use of the personnel, machines or both. And by reducing their attention to unused tasks.
