Factors Affecting Construction Labor Productivity 1 1. Introduction The measure of the rate at which work is performed is called productivity. It is a ratio of production output to what is required to produce it. The measure of productivity is defined as
Construction output may be expressed in terms of functional units or constant dollars. ... The selection of the appropriate type and size of construction equipment often affects the required amount of time and effort and thus the job-site productivity of a project. ... snow and severe temperature conditions affect the job-site productivity of ...
construction is a function of the design of the construction operation. This chapter will provide an overview of construction equipment selection and utilization processes. It will describe typical equipment spreads associated with two major classications of civil engineering construction projects heavy/highway and municipal/utility.

Other Factors Related to Environment. Besides the climatic conditions and temperature, other environmental factors also play a crucial role and can affect the productivity of concrete batching plants. These are, composition of the atmosphere, radiant energy, moisture supply, soil structure, composition of the soil air, biotic factors, soil ...
Feb 16, 2013 Earth moving Equipment are used in the construction projects, in order to prepare a plan and time schedule for such activities you should be aware of different types of Earth moving Equipment and the productivity for each Equipment (how much cubic meter of soil can be moved or excavated in a certain amount of time or how fast material can be transported).
conditions, can assist in estimating true machine performance. Many sections of the Handbook include tables or curves showing cycle times or hourly production fig-ures for Caterpillar machines under certain con-ditions. Statements of conditions always accompany or precede the curves or tables. Before using any per-
Apr 18, 2016 For example, a piece of equipment that requires a highway shutdown so it can be transferred to the site will have an impact, as will the job site if the equipment must be moved via crane into place. Also, consider whether a piece of equipment can reside in the factory for an extra week if the construction schedule is unexpectedly impacted.
The Construction Supervisor should understand the method to be used, precautions used to project neighboring buildings, techniques, if any, of monitoring of neighboring buildings for damage, dump site location and requirements, and proposed finish condition of site for next contractor to begin work.
construction equipment. The strength or stability of the soil may be increased by lowering the water table and the degree of saturation of the soil. In some cases this may be accomplished by installing ditches, either permanent or temporary, prior to construction. The high contact pressures caused by construction operations on an unstable soil ...
factors which affects on Construction Equipment Acquiring (CEA) ways. Purchasing with cash, financing through a loan, renting and leasing are four most common ways for CEA. For having the best result in profit for a construction industry, choosing the best alternative for obtaining equipment is one of the most important issues. The best
The output varies for various type of materials to be digged. The following are the main factors which affect the output of face shovel- Site Condition Height or Depth of cut Type of material Angle of swing Capacity of hauling unit and continuity of work Mechanical condition of shovel Efficiency of the operator
productivity tells how many units of output the equipment produces in an hour. It depends on the job conditions management conditions as well as the operators skill, persistence and co-ordination with other construction forces. Output of construction equipment is an important basis for its selection to do an operation as well as also for economic
A Construction Industry Develop ment Council task force developed a question naire of factors impairing construction productivity (CIDC, 1984). It lists seven cate gories and 95 factors. Table 1.1 lists the most se rious factors within each of the seven categories. Research findings by social scientists and construction researchers can ...

In order to improve productivity, a study of the factors af-fecting it, whether positively or negatively, is necessary. Making use of those factors that positively affect ...
In 2004, the construction industry provided 7 million wage and salary jobs including 1.9 million self-employed and unpaid family workers (Bureau of Labor Statistics 2006). In 1999, the construction industry provided 6.4 million jobs and the total value of new construction for the same year was $764 billion (Langsford 2006).
Apr 23, 2019 During the construction period, the cost of materials, tools, labours and equipment may vary from time to time. These variation in the prices should be considered during cost estimation process. Also take note of the changing market conditions which would most likely affect inflation rates as well.
construction, productivity is usually taken to mean labour productivity, that is, units of work placed or produced per man-hour. The inverse of labour productivity, man- hours per unit (unit rate), is also commonly used. Productivity is the ratio of output to all or some of the resources used to produce that output.
survey equipment used by the Departments construction/survey personnel, the maintenance and care of the equipment and general procedures for surveys using the equipment. The majority of surveys done by and for the department utilize total stations, Global Positioning System (GPS), engineers levels (optical and digital) and data collectors.
however, incorrect. Production is the measure of output (i.e., things produced) whereas productivity is the measurement of the production. The following two formulas can be used to calculate these two terms. Productivity Output (units completed)____ Input (work or

Sep 26, 2017 This is the expected manual labor efficiency factor. Add up the total estimated laborer hours from Step 1 and the estimated equipment hours from Step 2. This is the total construction hours required during normal weather conditions. Multiply the equipment efficiency factor from Step 5 by the total estimated equipment hours from Step 2.

Dec 01, 2011 Only the working condition will differ, and only due to impact because of the owner. The difference in productivity is the inefficiency/loss due to such impact. In cases of construction labor-productivity loss claims, the measured mile is the most widely accepted approach by courts and boards .
in the construction industry (Jarkas and Bitar, 2012). The first measure of productivity is the total factor productivity (TFP), which is defined as the ratio of total output to total input, with the latter usually including labour, materials, equipment, energy and capital. TFP is expressed as shown in Equation 1 Total output TFP
Sep 28, 2010 The equipment rate means many things to many people. People within the organization use it to estimate costs and measure performance, but they forget that the rate is nothing more than an interim estimate for the actual full lifecycle equipment cost the organization expects to experience if everything proceeds as planned.
