Paper Abstract

We analyze in this paper the relationship between geodetic measurement instrumentation, measurement processes, and man-hours required. To initialize this research, we carried out a detailed study of the current practice using standard tools and techniques from `industrial engineering.' We ran an experiment with geodesy students to carry out a time and motion study of the one-man-system of geodimeter and compared it with a traditional `two-man- setup.' The time analysis was done by videotaping the user during the operation and simultaneously recording the time of keystrokes in the recording unit of the instrument. We found that the students lost 15% to 50% for setting up the instrument and storing various initial information. These times are the same for the conventional two-man setup. We also determined average times of different parts of setup and measurement operations.
