KEY JOB. A job that is considered representative of similar jobs in the same plant, company, industry, or labor market and hence may be used for comparing the descriptions of other jobs with the key job for job evaluation and job classification purposes. May also be used as an aid in establishing wages for other jobs.

KYMOGRAPH. An electronic time study device used to measure extremely short work time intervals. Consists of a system of transducers (principally micro-switches and photoelectric cells) that are activated by an operator performing a job, and a tape puller that records the impulses as a function of time.
