This thesis examines American shipyard productivity. An attempt is made to measure changes in U.S. shipbuilding productivity to ascertain if U.S. yards are improving their position relative to their competitors. An international comparison of wages, material and overhead prices and cost structures are used to assess America's current competitive position. This study also provides a qualitative survey of lesser known shipbuilding nations about which little quantitative data has been published. A discussion of obstacles, such as government policy deficiencies and business practices, which continue to inhibit commercial shipbuilding productivity in the United States is also included. Recommendations are also provided.
