Mechanical Skills Assessment using the Standard Timing Model (STM)
Lower the Risk & Cost of Hiring and Drive Performance by Identifying Skills Prior to Hire.
The Standard Timing Model is our mechanical skills assessment tool used to identify mechanical skills and competencies when hiring machine operators, maintenance mechanics, electro-mechanical personnel, assemblers, or technicians. There are varying degrees of difficulty "assessment tasks" depending on the position you’re hiring for. The assessment protocols for a "maintenance mechanic" position are more challenging than the assessment protocols for a "machine operator" position.
The process identifies skills such as troubleshooting ability, spatial perception, quality differentiation, hand-eye coordination, qualitative and quantitative reasoning ability, the understanding of different mechanical components, and the understanding of mechanical Stroke, Timing, and Position.
This process quantifies mechanical skills and competencies that traditional aptitude tests are not designed for and can't identify.
The Standard Timing Model is unique in that the assessment machine and methodology have the capability to identify "mechanical instinct." With forty years of mechanical skills assessment data we know that when we test a pool of candidates that have had no training or exposure to a mechanical environment we will identify approximately 20% of these individuals as having innate mechanical ability. Our clients use this capability to staff entry-level positions and apprentice programs.
This assessment identifies skills such as troubleshooting ability, spatial perception, quality differentiation, hand-eye coordination, qualitative & quantitative reasoning ability, the understanding of mechanical components interacting, and the understanding of mechanical stroke, timing, and position.
