Operation Time


time spent on the performance of a production operation. It is calculated by using technical norms. Under conditions of socialist production its main task is to ensure rapid growth of labor productivity. Therefore, in setting norms for operation time, one identifies and studies all visible and concealed losses of working time, developing organizational and technical measures to eliminate such losses and devising and introducing time norms based on progressive organization of labor.
