A chart for examining fine details of movement over time, such as the hand movements of an assembly worker. It shows the movements of (such as) hands with notations to indicate how long each movement and pause takes.

It can be used for such as optimal placement of components and tools to minimize arm movement and hence speed and ease manual work.

The same approach can be used for any movements, which could be parts of a machine, movement of trucks, etc.

It originated from Work Study, the old 'Time and Motion' approach to improving assembly-line efficiency.
