Desktop Production Time Standards shows how long each task can take. The best managers determine typical shop production times and then do all they can to perform better than their competitors. To achieve this, they need a good yardstick for measurement and comparison. This reference book contains metrics for determining what is appropriate in machine process time, and operator performance time. It contains worksheets, templates and hundreds of time charts and tables that help you develop custom time standards for every service that your business provides. These times are critical elements in calculating budgeted hourly costs for each service. Easily perform "what it" analysis with these do-it-yourself spreadsheets. This product helps you estimate project time based on extensive research and custom time data. With Desktop Production Time Standards you can generate custom production metrics and determine which equipment and which employees are the most productive.
A special section takes you through the concept of "learning curve" and shows you how to use this technique to evaluate the skill level of any employee.
Also included is an extensive appendix of over 100 pages of actual time values based on comprehensive research. Imagine reading through dozens of actual time data points to select the times closest to your type of project. Then by comparing your actual time with that of competitors whose times are listed in the book, you can get a good feel as to where your company stands relative to the productivity of competitors.
Time is the key, and good time data can mean the difference between making or losing money on your next job. Here's a book that answers the client question, "How long?" and helps you learn "How much?"
"Your work in the area of establishing a common sense approach to 'Desktop Production [time] Standards' should be applauded. The Brenner Information Group has approached digital prepress cost estimating in a realistic fashion. I would recommend any prepress production manager or trade shop to invest in 'Desktop Production Standards' and establish internal production standards that will give them results of a realistic budgeted hourly rate."
Philip Age, Chairperson, Dept of Graphic Communications, Chowan College
