StopWatch for Process Engineers

Some time ago I noticed how some of my colleagues measure cycle times.
In order to balance the line they went along the line with stopwatch and measured 10 cycles of each job. The result was devided by 10 and that was "average cycle time" of that job. And they moved to the next working station.

I felt that that does not give them the right results. They did not know about fluctuation, about min and max time...
Based on that experience I decided to help them and give them better tool. It was not complicated to make simple program which could replace usual stopwatch by more accurate and comfortable solution.

Acex Stopwatch is a simple utility helping foremen or process engineers with line balancing.

Results can be then simply copied and pasted into Excel and you can quickly make charts and study it.
