The Heyde’s MODAPTS book, first published in 2001, is a fully revised presentation of the original MODAPTS Plus manual. It is intended for both people unfamiliar with MODAPTS and for experienced practitioners who need a clear reference.
MODAPTS is a simple and descriptive language for understanding work, tasks or activities.
The time needed to carry out any job is determined in large part by what the person performing the job has to do. MODAPTS provides a code for describing any work action and provides a time, a comfortable time, for that action. The letters used in MODAPTS codes have a clear association with the names of the actions they describe. They are easier to remember than those in comparable systems, yet they still retain the same level of accuracy.
