The IMD Technical Platform (ITP) is formed by the set of official systems selected to cover all types of method levels. The ITP was defined to concentrate the maintenance efforts on a limited number of systems, to facilitate the investments in software solutions and to create a stronger standardization effect worldwide. Each system of the ITP is under the responsibility of a NMTMA, which has to continuously improve the quality of the training material and distribute annually the new master manual to all other NMTMAs. Generally, the responsible NMTMA is the organization which conducted the research and development work.
The ITP includes the following systems:
MTM-2, developed in the sixties, represents a second generation of synthesized data, based on the MTM-1 system. It was constructed through use of statistical analysis of basic MTM-1 motion patterns. This system is best-suited for use in environments which exhibit the characteristics of series production.
Produktionsgerechte Konstruktion (Production-Oriented Design) is a comprehensive tool for improving the manufacturing process, during the design phase of product development.

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"
