El estudio de tiempos y movimientos es una técnica de la ingeniería industrial que busca aumentar la productividad de las organizaciones, eliminando en forma sistemática las operaciones que no agregan valor al proceso y se constituye en la base para la estandarización de los tiempos de operación. El presente trabajo pretende identificar la aplicación que el estudio de tiempos y movimientos ha tenido durante las últimas dos décadas, así como las técnicas y herramientas más utilizadas y los sectores a los que ha sido aplicado, para lo cual fueron consultadas las bases de datos Science Direct y Web of Science y se utilizó la herramienta tecnológica de análisis de redes de citaciones denominada tree of science, desarrollada en la Universidad Nacional de Colombia sede Manizales. A partir del análisis se pudo determinar que el estudio de tiempos con cronómetro, aplicado en su forma tradicional, es la técnica más utilizada para la medición de las tareas, adicionalmente se presenta una notoria tendencia a la realización de investigaciones en el sector salud.
