Abstract:

MIL-STD-1567 USAF, Work Measurement, evolved from a series of studies expressing concern for the economy and efficiency of manufacturing operations of contractors on major Air Force weapon system acquisitions. The MIL-STD establishes requirements for a disciplined work measurement system as a way to achieve productivity improvements. The MIL-STD has created some controversy and some resistance by Air Force program office and contractor personnel. This study examines those program office and contractor attitudes and the results of the implementation efforts to date. Inferences for future implementation and lessons learned are presented.
