Abstract:

This volume of Bench Work Occupations Standard Time Data is one of ten volumes of standard time data in the 11 volume series included in DWMSTDP. Bench Work Occupations as categorized by the Department of Labor includes those occupations concerned with the use of body members, handtools, and bench machines to fit, grind, carve, mold, paint, sew, assemble, inspect, repair, test, and similarly work relatively small objects and materials, such as metal products, electronic components, electrical appliances, instruments, footwear, and garments. The work is usually performed at a set position in a mill, plant, or shop, at a bench, worktable, or conveyor. At the more complex levels, workers frequently read blueprints, follow patterns, use a variety of handtools, and assume responsibility for meeting standards. Workers of the less complex levels are required to follow standardized procedures.
