Abstract

Productivity in a construction project closely related to the labour. The productivity of construction industry has a significant impact on the cost and profitability. A variety of previous studies on the identification of the factors that affect construction labour productivity (CLP) has been carried out by researchers in many countries. This study aims to critically examine the factors that influence labour productivity and classify these factors into groups of factors based on previous studies. Drewin's Open Conversion System is a theoretical framework used to classify those factors in this study. Based on this theory, there are three key factors, namely input, internal environment and exogenous. The input category consists of labour, finance, material, and equipment. Design, health and works safety, supervision, organization, scheduling, project, leadership and coordination, management, motivation, technology, socio-psychology, communication are the internal environment category. The exogenous category includes weather, government regulations, site conditions, economic conditions and public. In this critical review, 175 factors have been identified affecting the productivity of construction labour which is classified in the framework of the Drewin theory.
