Each of my teams now uses the same documents across their projects - keeps us all on the same page.
Competition is increasing in all fields of engineering and construction, and in order to
remain competitive in these evolving times, project managers must emphasize efficiency
in all aspects of their operations. This paper presents a case study utilization of the work
improvement study technique of crew balance charts to illustrate how a manager can
optimize construction labor crew composition and performance. The case study uses
data collected through a time study to create a crew balance chart for the work required
to place a drainage pipe. The initial crew composition and work performed in placing the
pipe is illustrated in the chart. After analysis, a revised crew composition is formulated, and
a second crew balance chart is presented to demonstrate time and labor savings.
Conclusions summarize the strengths and weakness of the crew balance chart technique
and how project managers can best use this tool in day-to-day construction operations.
