MEASURING PRODUCTIVITY IN CONSTRUCTION

Productivity in the construction industry has declined in the last decade. The extent of the drop is not clear, but many authorities believe it to be about 20% at the aggregate industry level. There are also indications that the decline has not been the same in the various segments of the industry and that productivity in industrial and power construction has fallen the most. The objective of this study was to review present construction productivity measurement procedures and to devise a program that will. Provide systems to measure productivity in construction at the aggregate industry, industry segment, and site levels, and collect and disseminate construction-productivity data on a national basis. A secondary objective was to examine current data and suggest procedures to determine more accurately the size of the construction industry and its segments. (Author)
