6 Feeding/Offbearing: Manual Labor Timed By Machines: sensory/physical work involving feeding of materials into machines or removing them from machines; the activity is determined and timed by the kind of material being handled and the requirements and speed of the machine. The person may or may not have some degree of responsibility for operation, adjustment or maintenance of the machine.
Feeding/offbearing: manual labor timed by machines requiring efficient, safe feeding materials into machines or offbearing materials from machines; assembly line activity.
|High motivation indicates that this person is able to exercise sensory/physical skills in feeding materials into machines, or offbearing materials from machines efficiently and steadily. Such activity is usually associated with assembly line processing. First of all, it requires tireless synchronizing of one's sensory/physical activity with the speed and characteristics of machine input or output. It also means little social interactions with others while functioning on-station.|
|Moderate motivation indicates that this person has sensory/physical aptitude for feeding materials into machines or offbearing materials from machines efficiently and steadily. Such activity is usually associated with assembly line processing. It is important to review other Worker Trait factors to determine if and how long this person would want, tolerate, or cope with being locked in with machine-mandated performance. One must be content with this kind of activity before one can be satisfied by it.|
|Low motivation indicates that this person's trait makeup is not compatible with assembly line activity where one is locked in to operational processes by station, function and timing. Such activity would soon be boring, tiring, frustrating and stressful.|
