Abstract : The report provides the underlying theory and methods used to determine the affect of the Work in Process Inventory Control System (WIPICS) on the F4-B to N conversion program and the Naval Air Rework Facility, North Island, California. The report documents cost savings of 3.24% of the 'before' WIPICS. It also concludes that these cost savings are statistically significant at the 10% level. (Author)
