The Industrial Modernization Incentives Program: An Experimental Effort to Improve Defense Contractor Productivity,
OFFICE OF THE UNDER SECRETARY OF DEFENSE FOR RESEARCH AND ENGINEERING WASHINGTON DC
This paper concentrates on the philosophy and concepts behind the current test of Industrial Modernization Incentives Program IMIP. The paper discusses how the test has been structured and applications to date. The test program is still in the early stages and the paper stresses that there are currently many more questions than answers. The aspects requiring further analysis are explored in detail. The paper also ties together other areas that relate to the IMIP and encompass the total environment motivating contractor productivity improvement efforts. These include Weighted Guidelines, Cost Accounting Standards, employee productivity incentive and bonus systems, multiyear procurement, economic production rates, the source selection process, and manufacturing technology.
