Work Study 


Work study
applies its methods, i.e. method
study and work measurement, to
analyze human work potential in
terms of time spend on completing a
task and looking at ways to make the
task simpler and easier in order to
increase productivity. Work study is
an area used to increase job
performance, optimum usage of plant
and machinery, standardization of
work methods, etc. Thus, the
objectives are:

Scientific and analysis of
existing methods of executing a
task.

Measuring performance of
qualified workers, and
establishing it as standard for
performance measurement.

Optimum utilization of workers,
plant, machinery and other
resources at minimum cost.
 Enhancing
productivity and worker mood.

Increasing efficiency of
organization.

The General Algebraic Modeling
System (GAMS) is a highlevel modeling system for
mathematical programming and optimization. It is the first
algebraic modeling language and is formally similar to
commonly used fourthgeneration programming languages. It
consists of a language compiler and a stable of integrated
highperformance solvers. Among these solvers are BARON,
COINOR solvers, CONOPT, CPLEX, DICOPT, Gurobi, MOSEK,
SNOPT, SULUM, and XPRESS. GAMS is tailored for complex,
large scale modeling applications, and allows you to build
large models that can be adapted quickly to new
situations. GAMS is specifically designed for modeling
linear, nonlinear and mixed integer optimization problems.
