Rates, Comprehensive


the time norms set for the aggregate of all jobs entailed in manufacturing one unit of output or for major separate parts of such a process.

Comprehensive rates are developed on the basis of a performance schedule for the production process being standardized that defines the composition and sequence of all the operations involved. In the USSR, comprehensive rates have become most common in construction, transportation, coal mining, and logging. In the coal industry, for example, comprehensive rates are established for the entire set of jobs necessary to extract one ton of coal.

The application of comprehensive rates promotes fuller utilization of equipment and production time and creates conditions for combining jobs and giving workers greater material incentive to raise labor productivity. Comprehensive rates are being increasingly applied as technology develops and flow methods of organizing production and labor are introduced.
