Work study has been applied in the factory for some years. It is only just reaching the farm, where it can often offer large savings in manpower and drudgery by the systematic analysis of how routine jobs are done and the establishment of improved methods of work. In this first book on work study on the farm, Nigel Harvey offers a simple but complete guide on do-it-yourself lines. In the light of his experience as a Kellogg scholar in USA and as a member of the Agricultural Research Council’s team of investigators into farm lay-out problems, he shows exactly how one can set about recording how a farm job is being done, analysing the results, and applying the lessons. There are many pages of explanatory plans and diagrams, and seven case-studies show, step-by-step, how work study has been applied to save labour on general poultry and market garden holdings.
