Abstract

Within all production systems that produce goods or services, the use of research aims to increase efficiency. In business, it is of great importance to identify in advance how to reduce costs in order to increase productivity and shorten production time. Work Study aims to solve this problem by calculating a standard production time and increasing the effectiveness of current methods.The purpose of this research is to try and determine factors that reduce efficiency due to issues of management, production processes, supervision of workers and aspects of the products themselves, thus helping enterprises take necessary measures in light of these factors. Important decisions made by enterprises in this context will be reflected in their production policies, and there should be an increase in the efficient troubleshooting of any production problems, an increased production volume, an increased production flow rate. This should enable enterprises to make great leaps forward in how they manage each factor involved.For the purpose of this research, times of non-productivity, due to business management and/or issues affecting workers, were investigated in medium and large scale furniture businesses in the Ineg?l district of Bursa. The aim was to help these businesses increase their efficiency. Results obtained were analyzed using pareto charts and cause-effect diagrams, both of which are simple, yet effective techniques for diagnosing and analyzing problems.
