Abstract : Productivity is a concept which generates a great deal of discussion in business and economic circles. This interest has precipitated research into the area of productivity measurement. In this study, a model developed to measure productivity at the firm level is modified and applied to the operations at a large commercial aircraft maintenance facility. The results not only address productivity areas, but also pricing decisions and overall profitability. Recommendations are made for improving the pricing procedures used at the facility and the labor output data collection process. (Author)
