The electrical construction industry is a high-risk and labor-intensive industry. The most volatile cost element facing specialty contractors, even the smallest firms, is field labor productivity. This new course will address many of the issues and new concepts necessary to successfully increase the productivity of on-site craft labor. Productivity involves not only labor but also materials, equipment, and management. All are necessary, but of these, improving craft labor performance is the most advantageous.
As a result of taking this course, participants will know how to plan, measure, and take corrective action to increase field productivity, understand "real life" tools and techniques that will lead to increased productivity and more profit from projects, and be ready in the firm to implement and measure the results of what has been learned.
Topics include productivity measurements and principles of improvement, identifying, quantifying and allocating risk factors affecting productivity, pre-job and pre-task planning, and tricks of the trade to cost-effectively measure field productivity.
