Increasing Field Productivity

Contractor success depends heavily on the field production of tradesmen. This seminar will lay out what Field Productivity really means, describe both the pitfalls of low productivity and ways to avoid them, and finally, equip participants with the tools to increase Field Productivity. 


  • Introduction to Field Productivity
  • The Contractor’s Role in improving Productivity
  • The Supervisor’s Role in Improving Field Productivity
  • Labour Productivity
  • Equipment Productivity
  • Factors that Impact Productivity
  • Quantifying Lost Productivity

The aim of this course is to provide tools for scheduling at the Site and Crew Level. Site Management (Superintendent, General Foremen and Foremen) influence millions of dollars of construction a year. They must ensure that all resources are being used efficiently with minimal waste.

Yet often, they receive very little in the way of training on how to plan and schedule field activities:

THIS COURSE is that training.
