Abstract

Presents the results of some recent studies undertaken to discover the effect of various factors on basic motions by conducting laboratory experiments, and the models derived from them. Argues that the PMTS in use since the 1920s do not take into consideration all the factors that affect time in basic motions. Argues that simultaneous motions, simultaneous symmetrical reach, asymmetrical motions, and cranking motion must all be studied and modelled.
