A computer based system for documentation and monitoring of construction labour productivity

Abstract: Improving labour productivity is one of the most significant areas that may result in competitive advan-tage for construction companies. This requires continuous monitoring, documentation and measurement of factors like quantity of work, site conditions, work conditions and crew characteristics. Time study is a systematic approach that can be applied by the site management to achieve these goals. However, various numbers of tasks to be undertaken are time/cost consuming and may seem to be a burden to the site management. Thus, a computer based system is a requisite for the long term success of the applications. Literature discusses the advantages and disadvantages of three widely used systems for documentation and monitoring of labour productivity on site. This article introduces a novel computer based system for documentation and monitoring of construction labour productivity. The system not only provides a user friendly environment for documentation and monitoring of construction labour productivity but also undertakes various statistical analyses. The future work in-cludes development of a neural network module.

Keywords: construction labour productivity, time study, programming, documentation, monitoring
