Abstract:

This MBA project is a study of the labor and industries program at Naval Consolidated Brig, Miramar, California. The Brig is set to expand in FY2010 and the brig Commander asked for research help exploring how the brig might make best use of this expansion in its labor and industries program. A tour of the base and conversation with brig administrators and supervisors indicates that the laundry area might be a worthwhile candidate for expansion. Expansion in that area could save the Navy three to four times what is being saved now by laundry operations at the Brig, plus manpower management of the laundry function is relatively easy since the training needs are low. This project recommends that the other labor and industry functions undertaken by the brig be carried on or at close to their current level of operation.
