dc.description.abstractThe purpose of this research is to better understand the relationships among regulatory focus (dispositional factor), inventory record accuracy (an operational context), and deadline tightness (a parameter under management control) against performance. Participant performance was measured by the amount of defects identified and the cumulative times to complete the given tasks. Two conditions placed on the participants were a high and low inventory-record accuracy and a loose or tight deadline, and prevention and promotion focused were measured on a regulatory focus scale. We analyzed, through statistical tools such as regression and a t test, the significance between performance, conditions, and regulatory focus. The anticipated outcome is to validate our assumption that tighter deadlines will lead to lower performance and that inventory record accuracy results in higher levels of performance. These findings may have practical applications for organizations such as DLA, NAVSUP, and other agencies or organizations that perform warehouse tasking when assigning or hiring individuals to perform such functions.en_US
