Abstract : This report describes the process and results of designing a group wage incentive system for production workers at a naval shipyard. The system provides periodic cash awards to groups of civil service workers performing above standard. A separate but similar system for first-line supervisors also was designed. Key features of the organizational setting that were considered in the design of these systems are discussed. Examples of award calculations and report layouts for the automated system are presented. Keywords: Productivity, Industrial workers, Incentive awards, Efficiency.
