Despite the importance of Productivity Measurement in representing company’s competitiveness, its implementation in Malaysia’s shipyard has not widely known and properly documented. This research project is carried out with the aim of determining the present methods and effectiveness of Productivity Measurement employed in local shipyards. The result of the finding was then used to propose more effective methods that are able to represent productivity level accurately. In this study, selected shipyard from various sizes had been surveyed with the sole purpose to determine the Productivity Measurement method use in their workplace. Concurrently, a form was developed to assist shipyard in measuring, collecting, recording and documenting proper productivity measurement data. Both survey and form was developed based on the Organizational for Economic Cooperation and Development recommendation. The form has been evaluated and tested at the shipyard to ensure its validity and practicality to be used in context of Malaysia’s shipbuilding environment. The form was then improved to suit the feedback received from both survey and pilot study. The result of the study is a more comprehensive Productivity Measurement method that is able to measure, record and analyze the actual productivity of a shipyard in term of capital, labour, machine and energy.
