Partial Productivity

A construction supervisor for a large homebuilder is interested in seeing whether there are ways of improving the profitability of the company by making better use of the people and equipment that are used to construct homes.

Research the construction industry to learn what the inputs are that are used by such a homebuilder to build homes (the homes are obviously the output that is being produced by the homebuilder). Be sure to include some inputs that do not strictly labor (in other words, include things that are pieces of equipment or resources other than people).

Give at least two examples of what a partial productivity statistic would be for some of the inputs that you identified.
