  • MOS is a tool that conducts multiple observations on a task to establish times for work cycle elements and identifies opportunities for waste elimination.
  • It establishes the “current state” together with identifying the “Gap” to move the task closer to “Ideal state” performance.
  • MOS can be used in any production or indirect area where there are a group completing repetitive tasks every day with a view to quantify them and break them out into value add or non value add tasks.
