Improving Productivity of the Construction Industry

2016-9-9  Several studies related to labour productivity are performed for construction industry in past. Several of them were related to calculating the effect of productivity factors. Measureable calculations about the effects of those factors are required for several purposes, it includes estimation of the construction project, it’s planning and scheduling. However, past study shows that it is tough to calculate such an impact, and a present there are no universally accepted standards to measure factors causing labour productivity loss in construction industry. This lack of methods form assuring effects highlights the need to enhance measureable assessments for the factors affecting productivity in building construction.
