The Naval Supply Systems Command (NAVSUP) operates stock points all over the world. Resources expended for the physical distribution function at these stock points amount to millions of dollars per year. It is imperative that these stock points operate to provide higher productivity at lower costs. Engineering the Workplace (ETW) is the productivity enhancement program NAVSUP feels will accomplish this. Comparing ETW with past productivity improvement programs within the Navy as well as current industry proven productivity improvement programs is the method used to determine the requirements and feasibility of its implementation. ETW is built on sound, proven industrial engineering techniques. Commercial productivity improvement programs can be adapted for use at government physical distribution activities. With proper headquarters support and with properly trained, well informed and supportive employees, ETW should be a successful program.
