Wow, that was fast.
I can hardly wait to see the kejah chart.
Where is the color chart of the therblig symbols? Writing out the names takes much too long!
Chhers, and thanks for the info.
Good question. I’ll have to get that posted.
I’ve also created a therblig-like set of actions for office work (called them ‘kejahs‘, even!)
Thanks for the comment!
