The best description of the founding of the MTM Associations and of the IMD was given by the first IMD president, Dr. Harold B. Maynard, in the keynote address of the First Annual MTM Conference at New York City, in October 1952, as follows: “Experience has shown that when an MTM practitioner gains confidence in his ability to apply the procedure, he very often develops the urge to improve upon it. When he encounters unusual motion sequence for the first time, he is quite likely to want to invent one or more new motion classifications and assign tentative time standards to them. If he then checks with a stop watch and finds that they seem to work out all right – which they often do if they are a very small part of the total cycle time – he concludes that he has added to the development of the MTM procedure, and he uses his new motion classifications thereafter without further checking.

Minimizing stress situations
“We’re also carrying out process analyses in the nursing area. This has the crucial benefit that it is easier to plan human resources needs, minimize stress situations and, at the same time, guarantee excellent nursing care or even improve it.”
Dr. Stefan Beyer, Managing Director, Vital-Kliniken GmbH
Ergonomics and economics
“MTM makes a significant contribution towards reconciling an increase in productivity and ergonomics. Because the basis for any increase in productivity is firstly the technical preparation work, the industrial equipment, but also the work design for the employees. When there’s an increase in productivity, there’s greater physical pressure for the employee – and the MTMergonomics analysis allows us to classify the level of this pressure.”
Harald Ebner, Head of Disk Brakes Unit, Knorr-Bremse Systeme für Nutzfahrzeuge GmbH, Aldersbach
"The introduction of the ERGO-UAS system has dramatically changed the way of developing the new products and of managing Production and the Industrial Relations. No motion can be designed, implemented and executed in our company without the scientific assessment of the biomechanical load generated by the motion itself. The paradigm "more productivity less health" has been turned into the new "more productivity more health" and the ERGO-UAS system has become one of the fundamental pillar of our production system"
