ASSESSING TRAINING COSTS (IN INDUSTRIAL TRAINING INTERNATIONAL, 2(12)/516-522, DEC 1967).
HERBERT, NORMAN
AS PART OF A COURSE ORGANIZED FOR SENIOR TRAINING OFFICERS OF THE ENGINEERING INDUSTRIAL TRAINING BOARD, COST ANALYSES IN THREE INDUSTRIAL SITUATIONS WERE UNDERTAKEN TO SHOW POSSIBLE SAVINGS IN USING SYSTEMATIC TRAINING BASED ON SKILL ANALYSIS. THE COST OF THE PROPOSED TRAINING WAS SUBTRACTED FROM THE CURRENT COSTS OF TRAINING TO ARRIVE AT POTENTIAL SAVINGS. ONE CASE INVOLVED PROPOSED OFF-THE-JOB TRAINING OF ASSEMBLY OPERATORS. THE SECOND CASE INVOLVED A FACTORY MACHINE SHOP EMPLOYING TOTALLY SKILLED CRAFTSMEN. THE THIRD CASE INVOLVED HIGH LABOR TURNOVER PRIOR TO REACHING EWS (EXPERIENCED WORKERS' STANDARD). SYSTEMATIC ANALYTICAL TRAINING NORMALLY REDUCED THE LENGTH OF TRAINING BY A HALF TO TWO THIRDS AND REDUCED AMOUNT AND COST OF REJECT WORK. TRAINING SHOULD BRING TRAINEES TO EWS, BUT EMPLOYERS MUST RECOGNIZE THAT THE HIGHER THE QUALITY OF THE PRODUCT, THE GREATER THE MANUFACTURING COST.
