Streszczenie / Summary:

This paper presents a computer-based implementation of the ChronFoto_RC method of time
consumption measurements on the basis of a selected test task. The article substantiates the subject
and discusses the essence of research in time consumed by assembly processes. The article presents
the characteristics of the ChronFoto_RC method, which is based on a combination of a time
study module and a working day's activity study module. The article presents assumptions responsible
for effectiveness of research into time consumed by assembly processes. The following parts
of the article present the main stages of application of the ChronFoto_RC method. The presented
results of time consumption research using the ChronFoto_RC method refer to assembling a mechanical
part of a machining centre made up of six operations, i.e. installing a bed, a Y slide,
a headstock housing, a rest, a turntable on the bed and a headstock slide. This paper presents principal
elements of ChronFoto_RC software, i.e. measurements sheet ZE2, an allowance sheet,
a diagram sheet and sheet Z2 as well as conclusions regarding investigated research and analysis.
