Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


It is important to select standard operators for the purpose of the smooth working of a conveyor system designed using standard time. An information-theoretic procedure is presented that is based on the Kullback-Leibler information for classifying operators in conveyor systems. The recommended procedure is compared with the statistical procedure, and is confirmed to be practical and relatively effective.
