Abstract : This report discusses methods the Navy can use to improve its work measurement and cost accounting systems to control rising labor costs. For example, improvements are needed to implement work measurement systems effectively; control labor-charging practices better, and set organizational goals and use individual performance appraisals to support management's efforts. GAO (General Accounting Office) makes a number of recommendations designed to improve the management of shipyard labor resources through better work measurement practices. The Department of Defense generally agreed with GAO's findings and recommendations and outlined actions planned to improve Navy work measurement activities. (Author)
