This project involves quantifying productivity of different construction processes, selected by the construction company “Van der Laat y Jiménez”, developed during the study period in the building of the “Centro Nacional de Control del Dolor y Cuidados Paliativos”. The assigned processes were observed and sampled to obtain data to enable calculation of productivity, labor yields and costs. The information obtained through videos and data collecting tables was processed by techniques like Five Minute Rating and Crew Balance in such way that a comparative analysis will allow to find a relationship between some variables that were considered important. One aspect that was found is that the crew size directly affects productivity and labor yields, but there weren’t any indicators of a relationship between the last two factors. All data and calculations are in a results database created to implement improvements where necessary and assist in future planning processes. In addition, it was found that the main factors affecting a process or task are the design of the workplace and the availability of the crane to work. Finally, it includes a series of recommendations to help find causes of problems and to maintain a good working space.
