JPR is experienced in industrial operations.
Management typically calls us with an objective in mind and we provide what the client wants. We don’t insist on our own particular buzzword, but apply the appropriate approach to achieve your goals. As you choose, we can do the job, or find the best potential, or lead, or support, or teach; in our specialties at the top of this page.
We'll be glad to assist your operations, for your objectives. We have done this before, and can create an effective solution quickly, especially if your resources are busy or lack experience.
A business routinely can need assistance with
Capacity;volumes, output, constraints, or cycle times. Work Measurement;time required, unbalanced workloads, delay, or lost time. Plant Layout;jammed production areas, or poor product flow, or low space utilization Facility Planning;growth, relocation, consolidation. Space in addition to, or instead of.
JPR has produced results in these challenges; click on “Track Record” above for our on-site results. Learn what we are all about from the list below; buy a book, read an on-line blog or article, download a free form or layout examples. Call or e-mail for rapid and personal input.
Let’s talk, at no cost or obligation, to answer your questions; to see if JPR can help and how we would go about it. As a start, phone Jack Greene at 843-422-1298 ore-mail.
Our Productivity and Industrial Engineering Books,click cover for contents.
The Industrial Engineering book includes the contents of Time and Motion Study, Layout, and Cost Reduction; but not Construction Piece Rates .
Blogs are about business stories in the news, with a focus not on Tesla and Amazon but on the underlying issues, which may challenge your organization as well. And your group may not have the resources of a Tesla or Amazon.

Major Industrial Engineering TopicsIE supports productivity and profitability in business operations with tools such as:
Work measurement, especially time study and work sampling Layout for plant, office, warehouse and shop; facility design, floor plan arrangements Optimized workloads, balanced and achievable Improved capacity, fewer bottlenecks, and utilization of labor and equipment Formal labor output plans; expectations, piece rate, or incentive And the end result of all these tools, cost reduction.
IE tools are applicible not only in manufacturing, but also in all industries that use people, or facilities, or equipment. And that is pretty much all of them.
Note that IE tools do not perform the same function. Furthermore, none of these tools is automatically valuable or useful; each has pros and cons, different potential cost and benefit in your circumstances. JPR is aware of the differences, the pros and cons, and selects the proper tool to help the cient reach the objective.
We are experienced, objective, and quick. We have the time and ability that perhaps your team doesn't have right now. We can guide, train, or perform the assignment. We invite you to take the next step; contact JPR. For no-cost discussions or questions, please call Jack Greene at 843-422-1298 or e-mail
Time Study, Time and Motion Study
How long does a job take? Arguably the most important piece of operating information, necessary in order for your organization to know objectively:
• What output to expect from people, equipment, processes?
• How many people and machines are required to produce today's volume? Tomorrow's?
• Is a workload too heavy or too light? Does it need to be reduced, or balanced?
• Where does waste movement, unnecessary activity and delay occur?
• Where are constraints, bottlenecks, due to machine, space, process?
• How to free skilled people of wasted time and of the lower-skilled tasks that are assigned to them, to optimize their special talents.
