SAM

Sequential Activity and Methods Analysis

All MANUAL WORK consists of the movement of objects with the hands in a planned procedure to accomplish tasks with useful functions.

Manual movement of objects follows a consistent pattern of ACTIVITY SEQUENCE:

GET an object and PUT the object into a planned final position.

The SAM system is based on this activity sequence.

The activity sequence includes three types of ACTIVITIES
