This report documents National Steel and Shipbuilding Company's (NASSCO's) efforts to develop self-managing, multiskilled work teams. The objective of this effort was to develop and test a new production work force organization corresponding to the technical requirements of product-oriented work breakdown structure, otherwise known as zone construction. NASSCO was awarded a grant from the Human Resource Innovation Panel (SP5) of the SNAME Ship Production Committee in order to explore the benefits of this type of work force organization.
