The article presents information on the use of the MOST® technique recommended by Scott-Grant for business management. The tool is being used in every business environment throughout the world by people from every kind of department. It can analyze all activities throughout the whole organization using a common, consistent approach without recourse to having to use a second or even third approach for specialist activities. It can be used effectively for the occasional assessment of work content or as the basis for a corporate resource measurement system. An automotive components manufacturer used MOST® to quickly develop accurate and detailed standard times and methods for all manufacturing operations. After training and a period of guided application of the technique, the benefits soon became obvious and the MOST® technique was adopted across all their plants.
