This thesis offers a method to reduce keypunch costs by increasing the marginal physical product of keypunch labor and machinery. The marginal product of labor is increased through (1) job enrichment, meaningful employee counseling, and motivational techniques, (2) an incentive plan that rewards productive employees wit higher wages or more leisure hours that is based on a Procedure-Time Model which is mathematically predetermined, but adjusted based on actual production, and (3) workspace environmental improvements designed to prevent working conditions from inhibiting the motivational and technological changes. The marginal physical product of machinery is increased through matching workload requirements to various hardware configurations with detailed emphasis on keydisk hardware specifications and operational experiences. The thesis includes the procedures and computer programs necessary for implementation and the production reports and attitude questionnaires necessary to measure the degree to which implementation has been successful.
