Join Jim Rogers for an in-depth discussion in this video Exploring productivity at the workface, part of Construction Industry Weekly.
- Hi, Jim Rogers here, and I'm back this week…to continue or deep dive into construction…productivity issues.…This week I'm going to narrow the focus…and look directly at what we call…productivity at the workface.…This is really just another way of saying…actual manpower productivity.…We already talked a little bit about…the time we lose when we add time…in our schedule in between our trades.…That's just dead time.…Nothing happens.…But the clock's ticking.…Well, the reason that time gets added is…that when the general contractor's producing…a construction schedule, they're working to give…their best guess at how long an activity will take.…
