Steps in  work Measurement:

The  various steps  are :

1. Break the job  into elements:

2. Record the observed time  for each  element  by means  of time  study  synthesis  or analytical  estimating method.

3. Establish elemental time  values by extending observed time  into normal time  for each element  by applying a rating factor.

4. Assess relaxation  allowance for personal  needs  and physical  and mental fatigue  involved  carrying  out each  element.

5. Add  the relaxation  allowance time to  normal  for each element   to arrive at the  work content.

6. Determine  the frequency of occurrences of each element in the   job  multiply  the work   content of  each element by its frequency( i, e,  number  of time the  element occurs in the job) and add up the  times  to arrive  at the work  content  for the job.

7. Add contingency allowance if any to arrive at the  standard  time  to do the job.
