Better productivity increases efficiency, reduces costs and time, and this is true for any industry including that of construction.

When productivity increases on a construction project it will not only come under budget, but will also finish within the scheduled time. Increased profits raise the value of the company and the ability to complete projects in time can lead to an advantage in further bids.

You can improve construction productivity by bringing in technological improvements like project management software. Well planned projects always have better productivity as work flows are rarely interrupted. Improving communication can also increase productivity as less time is spent giving instructions. A safe work place can keep productivity levels high as accidents can cause a lack of man hours needed for the job. A greater use of prefabricated items can save time and affect productivity. Well trained employees perform better. Construction sites must have the right materials at the right time, and this requires a lot of attention to be paid to inventories of materials.
