MTM-EasyTime: Calculating Standard Times – Simply, Quickly and Reliably

Introducing modern time management is (still not) an issue for many medium-sized enterprises – although their current productivity levels are often inadequate to safeguard their competitiveness in the long term. They normally say that determining reliable, work-related time data is too complicated, too long-winded and, above all, too expensive. According to studies, 70-80% of medium-sized enterprises in the manufacturing sector perform their planning work using times from previous years and decades, but often just using figures based on experience or estimates. However, do they know what their own production department is capable of performing? They do not have any precise figures – and that is the problem. Deutsche MTM-Gesellschaft mbH now has the solution: MTM-EasyTime, the first cloud-based software solution to calculate reference times simply, quickly, reliably and cheaply.
