Abstract : Public Works Centers have recently emerged as a new type of organization for accomplishment of the Navy's maintenance function at large naval bases. They are distinctly different from the older organizations for maintenance. Chapter I reviews this difference. The purpose of this study is to review the various phases of planning and control of the maintenance function in the new PWC environment, yet considering older organizational methods. Chapter II describes current methods and Chapter III presents a proposed system for improving work input and control functions. The intent to provide a reasonable and basic approach to these functions through the use of automatic data processing equipment. The PWCs have great potential for use of new computer systems. This potential, which has been recognized by the Navy Facilities Engineering Command, is reviewed in the study. Although specific proposals are limited to work input and control, other potential applications are discussed in Chapter IV. (Author)
