Concept of Scientific Management 1.Science, not Rule of Thumb : The time and methods of doing any part of the work are fixed objectively. Tools and working conditions arranged scientifically. 2.Harmony, not Discord: Provide adequate remuneration to workers Workersperformtheir jobs sincerely and enthusiastically Management will gain increased productivity.
3. Cooperation, not Individualism: The Management should promote cooperation between workers and management and between workers. Adopt an enlightened attitude towards workers Acknowledging their importance in raising productivity levels. Provide them Standard Materials, Tools, Working conditions and Training 4. Maximum Output, Not restricted Output For the management, maximum output leads to increased profits. For the workers, it leads to increase in wages and bonus
5. Development of each man to his greatest efficiency and prosperity. Taylor emphasized on Scientific observation of each element of a workers job. Job specialization Proper selection, training and development Planning and Scheduling of work Standardization in operations, working conditions Rewards for efficiency, wage incentives
Elements or Techniques of Scientific Management 1.Work Study Method Study Selection of job to be studied Recording of details of the job and methods employed to perform it. Critical analysis of the job Development of the new method Installation of the new method Maintenance of the new method
Time Study - Using a special watch to note the time of commencement and completion of each of the elements of a job. It necessitates splitting up of a job into number of parts to know how long it takes each of the different workers engaged therein to perform it. Motion Study - Studying the motions performed by a worker while executing a job. Fatigue study - Study of levels of physical and mental exhaustion. Taylor introduced suitable rest intervals as also the optimum size of tools to be used while performing any job.
2.Application of Scientific methods Consists of recording the facts of a problem – situation to determine the best method to perform a job. 3.Incentive method Taylor evolved Differential Piece Wage Rate System One for the worker who achieved the standard output and the other for the standard worker. 4. Principles of Management Taylor developed a theory on Functional Authority (Functional Foremanship). Everything in the organization had to be done by a plan Planning and Execution to be done separately. Profitability and Efficiency is improved through specialised knowledge and skill
5. Experiments Shovelling - Designed different types of shovels for different types of materials. Metal cutting – Designed most effective way of cutting metals while keeping them cool. 6. Standardisation - There are predetermined standards such as task, methods, material, quality and time. 7. Mental Revolution For Effective management workers and managers had to work in harmony, not as two hostile groups but as partners in mutual progress and prosperity.
