DATA

Problem 7-6

Using the following data, develop an allowance percentage for a job element that requires the worker to lift a weight of 45 pounds while (1) standing in a slightly awkward position, (2) in light that is very inadequate standards, and (3) with intermittent very loud noises occurring. The monotony for this element is low. Include a personal allowance of 5 percent and a basic fatigue allowance of 4 percent of job time. (Leave no cells blank – be certain to enter “0” wherever required. Omit the “%” sign in your response.)
