Abstract: Construction projects are unique and complex in nature. Various resources such as men, material, plant and machinery, capital, information, space, time, and above all local infrastructure are involved in the construction activity. Hence, controlling and monitoring the flow of resources plays a vital role in the timely completion of the project contributing to reduced delays leading to time and cost optimization. Productivity analysis of transit mixer, workmen have been done through data collected from a commercial project and suggestions to improve the same have been proposed. Logistics of two different sites one with onsite storage and other with offsite storage have been studied and recommendations to improve the logistics are provided. Some of the methods to monitor the resources on site have been proposed, which can be used without any hindrances at the construction project sites. Further, based on planned resources, a simplified logistics planning template and labour productivity monitoring data sheet which can be updated based on project’s progress is developed that can be used with ease at project site considering all the necessary factors. © Springer Nature Singapore Pte Ltd. 2019.
