The small and medium-sized business sector has been gaining ground in the production of goods and services worldwide, creating a highly competitive environment that forces to improve their decisions to increase productivity and organizational efficiency. A handy tool to achieve these improvements is the study of methods and times, oriented to provide information about processes, time spent in operations, as well as the calculation and improvement of standard times for the optimization of processes and costs. This article describes a procedure for obtaining standard times in operational, strategic, and support processes in four assembly companies: televisions, printed circuit boards, motorcycles, and bicycles. The times obtained in the operational processes were validated through comparisons with results reported in the specialized literature, while the times associated with administrative, strategic, and support processes were analyzed internally for the case studies considered.
