Increasing on-site productivity through wireless computer control
Abstract: Improving productivity has been a major objective of the building industry,
and indeed in all forms of business for many years. The construction
process involves many complex processes, which make it inherently
difficult to manage and can obviously lead to much inefficiency within the
process. It is possible for a wireless communications system to be adapted
for use on construction sites in order to improve management control over
tasks and communication between parties involved in the project. This
feasibility study shows that the implementation of such a system could lead
to significant time savings over traditional paper-based management and
