SYSTEMS APPROACH TO INCREASING PRECONSTRUCTION ENGINEERING PRODUCTIVITY

In the recent past, many highway and transportation agencies maintained large professional and technical staffs for preconstruction (postproject identification through letting) operations. Now, staffs have decreased and the scope of construction projects is changing. Projects are smaller but more numerous, which creates an enormous demand to increase individual productivity among preconstruction staffs. Improving productivity requires that management recognize the factors that affect it positivity and create an environment that supports them. This paper discusses the human factors of a system for increased preconstruction engineering productivity. The total system is a set of attitudinal and motivational elements and includes necessary communication and informaiton support. (Author)
