Factors influencing construction productivity in the Indonsesian context
Alwi, Sugiharto (2003) Factors influencing construction productivity in the Indonsesian context. In The 5th EASTS Conference, 29 October - 01 November 2003, Fukuoka, Japan.
Many construction industry sectors have been experiencing chronic problems such as poor safety, inferior working conditions and insufficient quality. These problems have been identified as factors that affect construction’s productivity and will affect company’s performance. This paper investigates factors influencing construction productivity in Indonesia. Data was collected through questionnaires and personal interviews targeting non-residential building and infrastructure projects. Key factors influencing construction productivity and their causes were obtained through a series of statistical analyses based on the contracting companies’ approach. The findings suggest that the key factors and their causes were influenced by three issues: (1) characteristics of contractors; (2) inadequate management strategy; and (3) organisation’s focus. A conceptual model of factors influencing construction productivity was developed to provide the contractors with information on which factors they need to focus. In addition, five alternative solutions are recommended to be applied on-site to achieve the best outcome of contractors’ performance.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
Full-text downloads displays the total number of times this work’s files (e.g., a PDF) have been downloaded from QUT ePrints as well as the number of downloads in the previous 365 days. The count includes downloads for all files if a work has more than one.
