The Journal of Applied Psychology, 1920, Vol. 4 (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from The Journal of Applied Psychology, 1920, Vol. 4 The preliminary work at the factory fell into two parts, getting personally oriented and getting in the proper rapport with those in authority. It was necessary at the outset to become familiar with the different types of work carried on at the factory and to learn the technical terminology. This knowledge was necessary for later analysis of the mental fac tors involved in various factory Operations. One of the assistants to the Factory Superintendent was detailed as aide to the writer, - conducting him about the factory, explaining the work and introducing him to various foremen so that it was possible to get acquainted and talk over the mental and physical qualifications for various kinds of work. A further study was made of the methods of accounting, time study and evaluating piece-work. These facts were of value in getting production ratings of men who were tested, and following up new workers. Data were secured on labor turnover to see what departments apparently needed the most attention. It was necessary, also, to become familiar with the executive organization in order to know to whom to go for information or to get various things done.
