IMS Measurement Practitioner using Activity Sampling, IMS Module 2c

This course requires IMS membership. It has an external examination and should be taken only after Module 1 Productivity Foundation.

Activity Sampling is a work measurement technique with a number of formats in which observations are made over a period of time of one or several people, machine(s) or process(es). It is ideal to help determine utilisation, staffing levels, balanced work content and to observe activities with a view to improvement.

Activity Sampling is suited to many industry sectors where multiple objects are being measured – people, equipment, processes, external factors etc. This may be in construction, service, commercial, banking, public sector, management or supervisory roles.

Successful delegates who have attended Modules 1 and 2c are awarded the industry standard IMS Measurement Practitioner certificate. This Module can also be taken as a supplementary course by qualified IMS Measurement Practitioners.
