Abstract : This Formula was developed for use in establishing time standards for all Manual Arc Welding Operations performed at NOPF with the type of equipment in use as of June 1959. It is suitable for use in time standard application to: Coated Electrode Arc Welding, Metal Arc Inert Gas Shielded Welding and Tungsten Arc Inert Gas Shielded Welding and on all applicable materials in all positions. Manual Arc Welding data was developed for use with NOPF Light and Heavy Assembly data in the complete standards application to Welding Assembly Operations, and the instructions for using the Assembly data are included in this Data Manual in their respective locations. All times shown on the Data Sheet are levelled times developed by elemental operations analyses, using Methods-Time Measurement and/or Time Study data in which no allowances are included. All welding process times are based on the operator using the correct current settings and electrode sizes as recommended by the manufacturers and/or engineering manuals. (Author)
