Contractor’s Toolbox – How JPM helps measure productivity in real time
Abstract: Traditional measures of productivity are after-the-fact accounting measures of production. They do nothing to help contractors monitor productivity during a job and respond to negative trends or other issues. So, increasingly, contractors are turning to Job Productivity Measurement (JPM). This article shows how JPM measures productivity in real time by tracking work performed compared to construction put in place. It determines the quality of construction outcomes, rather than simply outputs that can mask unproductive activities.
