Pre-determined Motion and Time Systems (PMTS) still used in many factories were originally suitable for those with large-scale batch production orders. However, existing PMTS software does not consider the entire manufacturing process and nor does it allow for any product changes.

These courses introduce motions sequences that assist in the design and composition of the work methods which result in accurate time values. They allow for flexibility brought on by worker fatigue, delays, machinery allowances, fluctuating order quantity and other common occurrences. Most importantly, factories will be able to shift from conventional batch manufacturing to the one-piece-flow concept employed in Lean Manufacturing.

In the new era of competitive garment manufacturing, efficient line balancing and WIP which becomes finished output in the shortest amount of time are increasingly important. This is made possible by Lean’s team-based concept which in turn cannot depend on conventional PMTS systems. The focus now becomes micro motions balancing and multi-skilled workers. This course provides the greater skills required to understand the motions behind each operation, to analyze and deconstruct each motion activity and then to rebalance everything across the entire product.


This course teaches participants both the theory and application of MTM I and MTM II through simulated exercises. Students who successfully complete the courses will be awarded with Black-Card® certifications

At the conclusion of the courses, students will be able to create time value structures tailored to the business activities of their current companies and design smooth balancing between the workers and their activities after adoption of the new work methods. They will be able to train workers to adopt the new work methods as well as make changes to allowances and time structures in order to account for any developments in production concepts or other factors.
