To do simulation studies without the appropriate manufacturing data is like using a map without enough details. You may or may not be able to find the right location. Many simulation engineers are missing the map that is detailed enough to give them the correct locations for the work elements. They are missing an important tool called work measurement to generate appropriate manufacturing data. With such a tool, they can do their simulation studies with accuracy and confidence. Work measurement is a fundamental industrial engineering discipline primarily used to improve productivity and the quality of management decisions. The paper discusses why and how work measurement should be used. Several examples of applications in a simulation environment are presented.
