Abstract:

The purpose of this research was to determine whether a model for measuring the productivity of a base level USAF civil engineering organization could be developed. The research was conducted in two distinct phases. The first phase was a review of existing literature concerning productivity measurement and led to the development of a productivity measurement model applicable to a base level USAF civil engineering organization. Productivity was defined as the ratio of actual to desired results, divided by the input for the organizational level being measured. The model is a three tiered structure consisting of strategic level organizational goals, supported by branch level objectives, and evaluated by performance indicators which are the ratio of actual to desired results which support the goals and objectives. The second phase of the research was a review of Department of Defense and Air Force literature in order to identify the strategic level organizational goals, branch level objectives, performance indicators, and input information for a base level USAF civil engineering organization.
