Product: Modsew - Apparel Rate Setting Software (MOD)
Byte Software's Industrial Engineering product is MODSEW® AccuRate™. MODSEW® AccuRate™ is a methods-oriented standard data engineering system that produces consistent, reliable pre-production and production time standards for manufacturing, distribution and processing facilities. MODSEW, based on the predetermined time and motion study system, MODAPTS, is easy to learn and use. MODSEW enables method analysts to classify and describe each motion required to perform a given operation and set the standard allowed minutes. MODSEW can be integrated with Byte's Incentive Payroll Software, thus eliminating any double entry and maintenance.
Say goodbye to the days of stop watch time studies and the inaccuracy of operator performance ratings. Set fair, objective and consistent time standards using pre-defined data. MODSEW helps improve working relationships by clearly defining all job assignments and expectations.
That are essential to effectively manage production in a manufacturing environment.
MODAPTS Software is the system of choice
MODSEW is a software adaptation of MODAPTS, or MODular Arrangement of Predetermined Time Standards. Developed in the 1960s, MODAPTS has been used to determine a "fair days work" for clerical workers, warehouse personnel, manufacturing and other business segments.
MODAPTS has been used around the world including Germany, Japan, England, Korea, Russia, New Zealand and 40 other countries. It has been used effectively by major companies such as Johnson & Johnson, Fisher-Price, Ford Motor Company and Oshkosh B'Gosh. Extensive use by supervisors themselves in planning their operations confirms its simplicity.
Price Waterhouse affirmed MODAPTS accuracy in comparison with other predetermined time systems and stopwatch time studies. This firm's extended study also found that MODAPTS could produce up to 20 standards per day, and that average supervisors and employees could understand and apply the system.
