Work Sampling is a technique used to investigate the proportions of total times devoted to the various activities that constitute a job or work situation. This statistical analysis or technique constitutes a very important aspect to increase productivity in all tasks performed by the user. The results obtained in this analysis provide the same information as a time study, but faster and at less cost. These results allow quick analysis, recognition and enhancement of tasks and performance competencies. The validity of the study depends on the quantity of observations obtained and the period over which the random observations are taken. In order to make a Work Sampling study more efficient and easy to implement, a mobile application will be develop as a tool to help conduct the Work Sampling technique. The application will be develop using Objective-C programming language and will be release for iOS mobile devices. The software that will be used to develop the application is Xcode Apple’s development environment. In order to use the application as an integrated tool for a Work Sampling study, it has to be able to generate random notifications in a given time interval, generate a new event for every time a study is performed, integrate a database to store the information retrieved in the study by the user and be able to export the events. Key Terms — iOS, mobile application, random reminders, work sampling.
