In recent years, the lighting industry has abandoned the use of work measurement and standards time tools and everything the use of such tools implies. Seemingly, their use was considered politically incorrect, perhaps because of the way companies approached these tools in the past. Nevertheless, these tools are still useful for planning and managing productivity and are becoming increasingly necessary. By investigating lighting companies in the region of Valencia (Spain-Europe), this study analyses perceptions about productivity, work measurement and standards time and to explores how companies use these tools. A survey gathering responses from interviews with 42 lighting companies (of the 230 entrerprises) was used to collect data on these companies’ perceptions.

This article presents results of this analysis.
