    Staying organized regarding your works and tasks is one of the basic elements that lets you to chase your goals and objectives efficiently in given timeframe. A variety of materials are Productivity 51 available to create programs, such as the Fatigue Management Reference, developed by the U. Fundamentally, the performance specifications should describe to the contractor what is needed for the final product and how it should essentially function once completed. As its name implies, they are descriptions that go beyond what photos and videos can explain and require a high-level of detail. Who Handles Construction Specs?

    The IDOT manual provides a low and a high value for the production rate of each item. Tip STAs usually have good data describing the labor, equipment, and crews used on projects, as well as their corresponding production. Through this way you can track done activities and works still to be done in your working hours or during office timing. In OctoberU. AWS have taken many forms, including a variety of extended daily work hours with compressed work weeks to telecommuting.

    Exposure to light in the late evening delays circadian rhythms. Tip A good practice is to have personnel move around or change tasks during a night shift. Qualitative recorded employee drawbacks to an AWS included longer workdays, family interaction issues, lack of daily daylight for certain tasks, and family schedule conflicts. Innovation is everywhere—and is rapid because of digitization. Secondly, and perhaps most importantly, it stresses that as the quality of the output construction produces generally boosts the productivity of the rest of the economy, productivity in construction should not be seen as an end in itself. Key Take-Away Productivity versus Production Rates Productivity rates look at production per unit time of individual labor, equipment, or crews, while production rates published by STAs are overall rates of production for activities or pay items.

As a rule of thumb, specifications will usually never over-explain how to build. Cornwell, J. While standard practice is to design work zones primarily to accommodate the traveling pub- lic, nighttime construction requires a fatigue-sensitive work zone that can necessitate positive physical barriers between the workers and the traffic.

The quality of the data collected by these exercises usually depends on the data collection effort. While an expected loss in worker productivity at night might be expected, in many cases, improved work conditions have been found during nighttime hours.
