The time study software
When you work on a project, your dearest wish is to satisfy your customer. You want to have the building ready for handover before the deadline, with a high level of quality, and most importantly staying within the initial budget.
However, with time, you might notice that things drift out of sync from the schedule, and that time is lost. This is due to malfunctions in work stations. What actually happens is that 50 to 80% of the tasks performed at a work station do not create value. Objectives aren’t met, and require overtime work.
In other words, you cannot always avoid insufficient quality levels and overtime. That’s when time study comes into play!
In order to set up continous improvement on a work station, whether it is about productivity, quality or safety, the first step is a complete evaluation.
With LeanCo Performance, you can ergonomically measure any work station, with a task assigned to one or several workers. You can of course configure the entire taskset of the work station beforehand. Beyond work stations, you can measure the performance of a crane or even that of a construction manager.
With the mobile and tablet application LeanCo Performance, first of all you have a precise stopwatch, with data being saved instantaneously, to measure a team of workers (the application is optimised for up to 8 workers). As soon as your measurement ends, you will have access to an aggregated rendition of them.
You will gain between 2 hours and a day of post-processing of the data in a spreadsheet. Lastly, a dashboard is available It allows to identify in a glance the areas of improvement to optimise your work station.
You begin by configuring the tasks and work stations.
You can now start watching a work station by assigning tasks to the workers in 2 clicks.
The data are now available. You can survey it by navigating the dashboard.
Ultimately, you can define improvement areas from the generated data.

Time study is a method to measure the time taken by each task. This analysis will yield the actual duration for each task, because it is based on a direct survey of one or several workers or machines, from a workstation or on a construction site.
When you wish to get started with continous improvement for a workstation, diagnosis is essential. This first step will measure the improvement potential for that workstation, and will give you quantified data that will be your basis for the next steps.
There are four key steps:
– Presenting results to workers, and looking for causes and solutions
– Deploying the solutions found
– Follow-up, to make the improvements permanent
No one in particular has to perform time study. Oftentimes it will be a member of the methods office, construction manager, or team lead.
If you need to survey many people at the same workstation at once, it can be more comfortable to have several observers. However, since analysis will happen on several mobile tablets, the results will be dissociated. You can still export the data in a spreadsheet to aggregate it.
Any kind of workstation can be observed: whether it is concrete work such as beams/columns, or workstations and machines that are much more rarely observed, such as a construction manager, or the crane!
With our application, you can observe only one workstation at a time. However, we are working on an update that will be released during the year 2021, and will allow for surveying several workstations at once.
The setup of LeanCo Performance is very quick. After your order is placed, you will receive an e-mail with installation instructions. This will take only a few minutes.
For now, due to usability concerns, the application is only usable on tablet screen formats. However, the new version that will be released during the year 2021 will allow you to perform time study on your smartphone.
All the measures made in the application can be exported as a spreadsheet or as PDF.
LeanCo Performance’s intuitive interface was designed for quick and easy pick-up, so no training is required! Put on your PPE, grab your mobile tablet and let the application guide you!
