Video Time Stamping
Canada Post Corporation (CPC) requested DAP’s expertise in video time stamping of carriers’ casing. The objective was to establish performance standards for over a dozen standard work elements. Carrier casing standards at CPC had, until then, been based on time studies. CPC was interested in getting a comparative benchmark using time stamping. DAP led a pilot study consisting of defining the time element activities to be video recorded. We conducted the time-stamping, and performed a comparative analysis of the recorded time units against engineered works standards. The process provided evidence that video-based time stamping provided far more precise measurement standards.
