Methods-Time Measurement (MTM) is a predetermined motion time system that is used primarily in industrial settings to analyze the methods used to perform any manual operation. In this paper, we introduce a system for automatic generation of MTM codes using only head and both hands 3D tracking. Our approach relies on the division of gestures into small elementary movements. Then, we built a decision tree to aggregate these elementary movements in order to generate the realized MTM code. The proposed system does not need any pre-learning step, and it can be useful in both virtual environments to train technicians and in real cases with industrial workshops to assist experts for MTM code identification. Obtained results are satisfying and promising. This work is in progress, we plan to improve it in the near future.
