software program called AccuStudy can determine the efficiency of
manufacturing tasks while eliminating the use of handwritten notes
and calculations on the job. The program, developed by Advanced Time
Studies, Inc., automatically creates detailed reports and summaries
of efficiency results for such operations as floor layouts and material
handling in less time than traditional methods, allowing for greater
productivity and a smaller margin of error. AccuStudy eliminates hand
recording, and the output is translated into easy-to-read graphs and
worksheets. A specific task can be recorded, analyzed, and printed
instantly. The software employs simplistic and familiar production
icons and can be utilized by any handheld device that runs Windows
CE. It is available with regular updates and upgrades, as well as
24-hour technical support. For more information regarding AccuStudy,
