Abstract : This document is a comprehensive report on the first phase of the Defense Productivity Process Improvement (DPPI) Project. The purpose of the project is to improve the current Defense Productivity Program in general and the Work Measurement/Labor Standards program in particular, along with the necessary supporting automated information systems. The DoD Productivity Program was established formally in 1975. Since that time, program changes have not kept pace with major changes in the defense environment, culture, technology, and management. As a result, the program now suffers from policy deficiencies and infrastructure inadequacies. One particular stimulus for this project was a series of Inspector General (IG) studies and reports noting deficiencies and calling for improvements in the use of Work Measurement and Labor Standards by DoD service components. A second motivating factor was an IG evaluation of DoD management improvement programs and tools which pointed out their overlapping, redundant, and misused characteristics and which called for centralized coordination and more effective application of these programs and tools. This comprehensive review is a necessary first step toward modernizing the productivity program to make it work better and cost less.
