ENERGY, LAND USE, AND GROWTH POLICY: IMPLICATIONS FOR METROPOLITAN WASHINGTON. SECOND EDITION
Plans for a workshop to be held to obtain recommendations for the National Science Foundation on specific industrial productivity problems are outlined. Discussion and question and answer sessions will be aimed at formulating research projects or objectives that would aid productivity. For the workshop purpose, a definition of industrial productivity includes all actions contributing to industry-wide efficiency, total product cost, and production volume. Six industries, automotive, electrical machinery, machine tool, household appliances, food processing, and iron and steel, were selected for study. A list of problem areas and questions, researchable problem guidelines, and a list of questions for the industry participants are included. Detailed statements of suggested productivity problems submitted by a panel of academic and research experts selected to respond to industry representatives' statements are included in the appendix.
