The process identifies skills such as:
• troubleshooting ability
• spatial perception
• quality differentiation
• hand-eye coordination
• qualitative and quantitative reasoning ability
• the understanding of different mechanical components
• understanding of mechanical Stroke, Timing, and Position
This process quantifies mechanical skills and competencies that traditional aptitude tests do not identify.
The Standard Timing Model is unique in that in addition to identifying trained skills the assessment machine and methodology have the capability to identify "mechanical instinct." With forty years of data SMT highlights the fact that when testing a pool of individuals that have had no training, using a less difficult assessment protocol, SMT typically identifies approximately 25% of these individuals as having some degree of mechanical aptitude. This aptitude translated directly to trainability. SMT’s clients use this capability to staff entry-level positions and apprentice programs.
