Abstract

Estimating the labor-hour requirements of discrete assemblies is often critical to numerous manufacturers because of its usefulness in determining the production cycle time, the costs of products, the performance of employees, and the price quotes to customers. The traditional method does not necessarily provide a fast and realistic estimation because of the time and complexity necessary to develop and estimate pre-specified times and allowances. In this paper. we propose a new procedure that is simpler and/aster. First, we present the data requirements and the regression-based procedure to estimate the Labor-hour requirements. Next, we show how specific linear and nonlinear regression analyses are used to determine the labor-hour requirements. Our approach bypasses the cumbersome and time-consuming allowances and pre-specified times as much as possible. To illustrate the key features of our procedure, a numerical example is explained throughout this paper.
