Eleven Basic Principles of Work Simplification

  • Clem Zinck


“Work simplification” is an organized, common-sense attack upon the way in which work is done—usually factory operations, but the technique is applicable to the office as well—with a view to doing it better, and, in fact, with the ultimate objective of doing it the one best way. It makes use of the techniques of time and motion study, such as discussed in Chap. 5 of this handbook, but it goes beyond a series of techniques, for a program of work simplification consists, in the last analysis, of instilling a new philosophy about work in the minds of everyone concerned, changing the direction of thinking of everyone in the company.
