    Measuring Productivity in Construction

    Measuring Productivity in Construction CoverPublished by The Business Roundtable, 1982

    The objective of this study is to review construction productivity measurement procedures and devise a program that will provide systems to measure productivity in construction at the aggregate industry, industry segment and site levels then collect and disseminate construction productivity data on a national basis.

    Key Findings:

    • Site productivity data is at the level where construction management can achieve timely, effective results in maintaining or improving productivity trends.
    • Some owners and contractors derive an indication of site productivity through programs that measure the time spent on work activities rather than work output.
    • Federal government is the primary source of national productivity data, but the coverage and statistical adequacy for the construction industry leaves much to be desired.
