Relay Assembly Test Room. The room was well lit and its temperature and humidity were carefully regu- lated. In addition the six employees were given regular medical check. The room contained an assembly bench at which five of the women sat assembling telephone relays. The sixth worker provided the others with a constant supply of parts. Construct-.
Bank Wiring Observation Room Study In this experiment a group of fourteen male workers employed in the bank wiring room were deeply observed. With this hypothesis that workers individually would produce more output and help others but it was found that workers did not produce as per expectation and under group pressure they did not produce more than the group standards.
Theresa Layman Zajac, Relay Assembly Test Room Operator, 1976 Women in the Relay Assembly Test Room,. In the study of fourteen men in the bank wiring test room, where conditions were unaltered, no change in productivity occurred—attributed in part to an implicit understanding among the workers not to exceed what they considered a fair quota. Daily History Record, October 16 and 17, 1929.
Though all experiments have unique capabilities and functions, most of them have some abilities in common due to Jumba reusing DNA from one experiment as a prototype for a different experiment, like the similarities of body shape, appearance, and even for powers like in the case of Jumba reusing some of Twang (021)'s DNA in the creation of Bragg (145), granting the latter musical ability. Most.
Harvard researchers Mayo and F. J. Roethlisberger supervised a group of five women in a bank wiring room. They gave the women special privileges, such as the right to leave their workstations without permission, take rest periods, enjoy free lunches, and have variations in pay levels and workdays. This experiment also resulted in significantly increased rates of productivity.
Women in the Relay Assembly Test Room, ca. 1930 In a separate test room, an operator prepared parts for five women to assemble. The women dropped the completed relays into a chute where a recording device punched a hole in a continuously moving paper tape. The number of holes revealed the production rate for each worker. Researchers were unsure if productivity increased in this experiment.
To examine the influence that informal group rules had on worker productivity, Mayo and his team created the bank wiring observation study. Fourteen bank wiremen (nine wirers, three solderers, and two inspectors) were placed in a separate room and told to complete their individual tasks. The men in the room were putting together automatic.
