Movement analysis


The study of schedule of a technological operation reveals the schedule that allows a shorter path of movement and optimal sequence of grips and movements in the operation. Better schedule and sequence lead to the increasing of labour productivity and better humanization in work, as well as better utilization of existing resources, shortening the total length of moving the objects of work, reducing the number of grips, shortening the duration of the operation.

Organizational model is different from the production technology and it can be made in a written form or acquired during a long series of repetitions, and it is caused by:

  • schedule in the workplace,
  • sequence of performing the task and
  • interdependence of performing the grips.

 The following rules are particularly important:

• workplace must have the optimal size,

• working conditions should correspond to standards,

• equipment should enable work in a standing or sitting position (employee elects)

• equipment should be located in the optimal zone is selected according to the frequency of handling,

• arrange the equipment to provide the optimal sequence of movements in the operation and

• arrange the equipment for supplying the workplace so that it should be optimal in relation to employees and inter phase transport.


Knowledge Management

Knowledge Management has a role to ensure that people have the knowledge they need where they need and when they need, i.e. the real knowledge in the right place and at the right time. There are many definitions of knowledge management, such as:
• Knowledge management is to discover, develop, utilize, deliver, and absorb knowledge inside and outside the organization through an appropriate management process to meet current and future needs. (Ouintas, Lefrere and Jones, 1997).
• Knowledge management is a process that helps organizations find, select, organize, disseminate, and transfer important information and expertise necessary for activities. (Gupta, Iyer and Aronson, 2000).
• Knowledge management is getting the right information to the right people at the right time, helping people create knowledge and sharing and acting on information. (Holm, 2001).

Strategic view on knowledge management considers the union between technology and human factors as a basis for market survival. Some authors even differ the very nature of the concept of knowledge management from other strategic concepts just according to passion, courage and confidence of a knowledge leader.

Knowledge management requires turning personal knowledge into corporate knowledge which can be shared and appropriately applied in the organization. It is most commonly defined as the collective knowledge, including experience, skills, information and data of an organization. Three key factors of knowledge management are people, technology and organizational processes. This concept of management is a key activity in organizations because knowledge is considered to be the most important resource that provides competitive advantages and competitive markets.

Knowledge management aims to increase the efficiency and effectiveness of an organization, allowing employees at all levels to use their knowledge, experience and skills in order to get the right information that will enable the achievement of an organization's goals. That is, actually, the most effective usage of intellectual capital of a business
