Abstract:
The construction industry in India has a share of about 8% of its GDP and provides employment to around 35 million people. A lot of research has been done to find and analyse workers productivity in Indian construction industry. Research on workers’ productivity in construction related activities were limited to large and medium sized projects. This study aims at analysing labour productivity and relation between direct work and their productivity in small construction projects. This industry of small construction projects is labour intensive. The studies incorporated interviews with on-site personnel, work sampling, work measurement and direct observations of different activities. Productivity of different activities was measured directly by measuring actual works at site. Work sampling was used to measure percentage of direct work. The study shows that the percentage of direct work, indirect work and no work was varying between 32-44.6, 40-44 and 15-20%, respectively. It was also found that productivity was higher for the sites where percentage of direct work was higher. The study reveals a huge scope in productivity improvement by reducing no work and indirect work proportion of workers effort at site.
