Productivity Improvement for Mechanical Projects

Great project management is primarily responsible for creating excellent productivity on every project.  Due to the endless number of variables, which negatively effect worker efficiency, excellent productivity is the project team’s greatest challenge.

Productivity also has the greatest positive or negative impact on project and company profitability.  Excellent productivity requires proactive, diligent, and detailed planning by the project manager at each step of the project.

This 1 1/2 hour webinar will provide proven methods and practices for creating, controlling, and improving project productivity on all types of projects.


The following topics will be presented and discussed:

• Material handling practices that guarantee improved jobsite productivity
• Understanding “average” productivity and the “typical” construction site work day
• Identifying, managing, and controlling recoverable lost time
• Understanding the differences between management-caused lost time and worker-caused lost time
• Understanding the differences and the important connection between punctuality and productivity
• Planning, productivity, and profitability relationships
• Planning activities that have huge impacts on productivity
• Identifying and controlling the internal and external factors that affect productivity
• Fabrication, preassembly, tagging, and bagging
