What if data entry clerks were paid based on production? Do feel this could work?

I know there are many cons to production based pay some of which are: regard to the quality to work
Fix: An audit system that random samples a small percentage of entries (will call it A) produced and based of of the percentage of entries done correctly (called B) from that sample you would then pay them (called D) that percentage of the total number of entries done (called C).
So in short the system would pull A from C. Review/grade A to generate B. Use the percentage B on the total C. to generate an amount that you would pay the clerk for.

The goal of this system would be to increase productivity and moral, lower mistakes. Lower number of employees and cost of processing.

If data entry clerks were paid based on production, it would work. As you have highlighted in regards to quality of the work, the system that involves reviewing entries that have been produced is effective. This will not only increase the quality of production, but also reduce the processing cost.

So if this would work we would now have to address a worker's pace on both extremes. Working to much to where it is unhealthy for them to work long hours. I suppose you could tell them the facility would be open to them for a set amount of time and require them to take an hour lunch, while also saying they can't work more than 40 hours in a week.

Then there are those who would like to come in work real hard and not show up for the rest of the week. I suppose a production base line could be imposed but that still wouldn't stop people from reaching it and leaving. you would still have empty desks that could be filled with potentially working clerks.
