Abstract:

This thesis sought to identify an alternative incentive system and determine if it is feasible to implement it at the Naval Air Warfare Center, Aircraft Division, NAWCAD Patuxent River, Maryland. The goal for the incentive system would be to help stimulate an increase in productivity. This thesis also sought to determine the structural and accounting barriers to the implementation of such an incentive system. The thesis examined the current pay and incentive structure at the NAWCAD and examined three alternative incentive systems individual, group, and organizational. Given that public employees may be motivated differently from private sector employees, this thesis recommended conducting a survey of the NAWCAD employees to determine motivation factors and then implementing a group incentive system on a trial basis in test work centers.
