One month ago, the first of four annually planned updates of the cloud-based software solution TiCon for Web went live. TiCon for Web now comes up with a number of new features. Great added value is offered by the integration of the process building block MTM-UAS®, MTM-MEK® (one-of-a-kind and small variable batch production), MTM-VI® (Visual inspection) and MTM-LOG® (Logistics).
Anyone who has recently taken part in training on the MTM-UAS® process module system has already been able to benefit from the integration of the new cloud-based software solution TiCon for Web into the training. As of April 15, the motto for further training courses will be: TiCon for Web inside! This applies to MTM-LOG® (logistics), MTM-VI (visual inspection) and MTM-MEK®.
On March 16, 2023, on Day 1 of LATC2023 in Mannheim, the focus at the MTM ASSOCIATION e. V. theme area will be on designing efficient and ergonomically work systems. Andreas Bochmann, Project Manager Digital Solutions, and Dr. Steffen Rast, Head of Department Ergonomics, both Deutsche MTM-Gesellschaft mbH, will demonstrate how easy MTM-Easy® is to use and how ergonomics assessment with EAWS® works in conjunction with, for example, a motion capturing suit.
One person who still experienced MTM co-founders Lillian Gilbreth and Harold B. Maynard himself is Carl Becks, from 1992 to 2000 managing director of the German MTM Association, now MTM ASSOCIATION e. V.. In this interview, the 88-year-old talks about the encounters, about MTM in the U.S., in Europe and the development especially in Germany.
The 69th spring congress of the Gesellschaft für Arbeitswissenschaft e. V. (GfA) was held under the theme of “Sustainable work and learning”, and the contributions made by the MTM ASSOCIATION e. V. were a perfect fit. Manuela Ostermeier, project manager for digitization and internationalization of MTM training, used the example of e-learning developed by her team to explain the importance of the digital transformation of training products for a globalized working world.
“The Future of Work” will be the focus of the 3rd International E-MAS Conference starting on February 27, 2023 in Aguascalientes, Mexico. The MTM ASSOCIATION e. V. as co-organizer of the 3rd E-MAS Conference is also represented in the multi-day lecture program.
The One-MTM partner network is celebrating its 3rd birthday these days – and has every reason to celebrate. Because it is making great strides. More than 1,600 of the certificates issued by the MTM ASSOCIATION e. V. last year came via One-MTM.
At LATC2023, MTM ASSOCIATION e. V. and Halocline GmbH will be using the example of VR and the MTMmotion® interface solution to show what is already possible today in terms of digital work planning: planning reliability with the fun factor. Read an interview with the two main players on the theme area here.
The MTM ASSOCIATION e. V. and the Fondazione Ergo-MTM Italia are further developing the EAWS® ergonomics assessment method as part of a consortium project. EAWS 2.0 is intended to synchronize workplace design, method planning, time measurement and ergonomics assessment in one process.
The MTM Academy team counted a good 4,400 certificates in MTM (Methods-Time Measurement), the method standard for designing efficient and ergonomic work, last year. In addition, more than 1,600 certificates were awarded via the One-MTM partner network.
