A digital video-based approach is proposed to enhance work measurement and analysis by facilitating the generation of rapid time standards. This approach takes conservative videotaped analysis a giant step forward. A genuine description of the work situation is imported into the analytical system via digital video input, thereby enabling a free-of-work site attendance study for evaluating time and work performance. The proposed method serves as a computerized tool for remote work measurement with the ability to derive rapid generation of time standards. The paper verifies the method's abilities for rapid generation of time standards through five case studies. It compares the performance of work analysts for making a MOST (Maynard Operation Sequence Technique) study using the proposed method versus using traditional videotape analysis. About 40% of the time devoted to work measurement and analysis can be saved using this technique.
