I see where collective dose is useful when planning repetitive jobs, primarily in nuclear plant environments, and is also a useful metric to determine that appropriate actions have been taken to reduce the overall dose with degradation of the job's goals established. Individual dose is obviously of greater importance, but these individual doses ultimately do roll-up.

I personally like the term dose/hour worked when comparing dose reduction success and job planning.
