Implementation of work study in construction project
Author(s): Gaurav Raj
Abstract: Work study has always been an important tool in improving the plant layout in manufacturing industries by capturing the flow of materials and workers. Work study techniques are not very widely used in construction sites due to complex and dynamic nature of construction projects. The present study is based on implementation of work study in a congested residential construction project. The study incorporated various method study charts to capture the flow of men and materials at the construction site. Relationship diagram was drawn using the method study charts to show the closeness among the facilities. Site layouts were drawn for possible relocation of facilities. Recommendations were suggested to effectively use the construction space.
