Based on the UNIFORMAT II format for organizing building data, established in Classification E1557, and depending on the level where measurement is applied (industry, total job, or building element), JPM measures construction productivity at three levels: task, project, and industry (shown in Fig.1). By comparing labor hours used against CPIP, JPM allows for unified measurement of established building elements (according to the UNIFORMAT II format. This practice establishes a process for measuring construction job productivity by comparing labor usage to CPIP.
JPM measures labor productivity of the installation processes on a construction job.2
CPIP is measured with input from the labor performing the installation, utilizing elements of statistical process control (SPC) and industrial engineering.
JPM takes into account the difficulty of installation at any given point on a job.
JPM evaluates relative productivity changes using trend monitoring.
This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
2 JPM is based on the application of Job Productivity Assurance and Control (JPAC), which has been used in industry for more than fifteen years, resulting in 20 to 30 % improvement in productivity for contractors using it.
