Analytical hierarchy process, labour productivity, stake holders


The study aims at identifying the factors an affecting labor productivity of Building construction projects in the South Gujarat. . To do so, as per sample size 350 Stakeholders working in construction completed a structured questionnaire survey ranked the identified factors according to analytical hierarchy process. 40 factors were identified through a detailed literature review. Factors of similar nature were grouped together; giving rise to seven main groups that are: technical, labor, materials, equipments, external &environmental, safety and quality. The analysis of the identified factors indicated that the top ten important factors negatively aecting labor productivity of building construction projects in South Gujarat are: quality inspection delay, working at high places, rework, low quality raw material, lack of material, delay in arrival of material, equipment shortage, lack of labour skill, payment delay
