SubjectConstruction Management
AbstractWritten for project engineers, superintendents and foremen, Productivity in Construction provides a comprehensive overview of the factors that affect productivity. The document addresses a wide range of micro-related productivity issues (i.e. those that construction practitioners can influence directly as opposed to macro-issues such as government regulation and research and development investment) and provides a framework to improve on-site construction productivity. You will find sections on measuring and improving productivity at construction sites and on recognizing the impact that human factors such as motivation, learning curves, overtime, experience, and absenteeism have on productivity. The importance of competent, professional management is also addressed.
