MTM-UAS (Universal Analysing System)
MTM-UAS is one of the most popular systems and is up to 8-times faster than MTM-1 was developed between the years 1976 and 1978 by a consortium which included members of the German, Swiss and Austrian MTM Associations
MTM-UAS is a third-level MTM system that is suited to applications in batch production. It includes 7 basic motion categories:
- Get and place,
- Handle tool,
- Motion cycles,
- Body motions and
- Visual control.
Additional second-level standard data in MTM-UAS cover activities such as fastening, marking, packing and assembling. The analyst time required to apply MTM-UAS is about 30 times the task cycle time.
MTM-UAS provides method description and determines the allowed times in batch production. The system was developed with the following objectives in mind:
- high analysing speed
- sufficient accuracy
- small amount of data
- universal applicability
- reproducibility of work methods
