Abstract:

The overall goal of the five-phase study was to identify and develop productivity measurement and methodologies and models that will effectively integrate with government to contractor incentive methodologies. The phase III report consists of three volumes. Volume I consists of a detailed summary of the Phase III Study Volume II, a detailed analysis of the models tested Volume III, final report briefing at DSMC. In Phase III, three productivity measurementevaluation models were paper tested against a generic set of criteria to depict the relative strengths and weaknesses of each model as directly related to the intended application. The paper test revealed the critical need to develop a productivity measurement methodology for defense contractors that represents a grand strategy, which can be tailored to suit specific situations and circumstances.
