MTM-MEK is a time standard from the MTM organization that is used extensively in Europe. The detail level in the standard is high-level; it is most applicable to order-oriented production of products with little or no repetition large number of product types and varieties long-cycle or non-cyclic work processes constant changes in the work processes and conditions relatively low degree of routine with limited possibilities of detailed work instructions with the associated result of increased variation in the work method
MTM-MEK has a basic set of codes and a more advanced set that is referred to as the Standard Data Additions. MTM-MEK codes are included by default.
MTM-MEK Element Types

R (Retrieval): This is what you will use for all standard MEK Codes
P (Process Time): Enter a quantity of TMU's in the Code field, or enter a time value followed by a dash and the time unit.
MP (Manual Process): Enter a quantity of TMU's in the Code field, or enter a time value followed by a dash and the time unit.
L (Literal): This tells the calculator to ignore the line because it represents a comment
