The advantages and disadvantages of average labour productivity and total factor productivity measures are discussed in detail, and the relationship between these two measures is established both theoretically and in an application at the industry level.

    Measure non-manufacturing productivity in dollars instead of units This formula works well in a factory-type setting, where each unit is of equal size and value. But in other types of businesses, it can fail to take into account complex jobs, different types of roles and working styles, and other factors. Total productivity = Output quantity and quality / Input quantity and quality. (Saari, S. ) Measures of productivity and their uses Measurement of productivity is it a ratio between input and output. In general, measure of productivity can be divided into multi-factor productivity measures and single-factor productivity measures.

This is a comprehensive study of measurement and substantive issues that arise in determining the rate of multi factor productivity (MFP) growth in the transportation industry over the postwar period, Official data on output and employment are provided by two government agencies and conflict markedly for railroads, airlines, and trucking.

10 Productivity in the Transportation Sector Robert J. Gordon If we are ultimately to gain an understanding of the underlying causes of the worldwide slowdown Measurement and analysis of productivity in transportation industries book productivity growth in the s and s, analysts must probe at the microeconomic level of industries, firms, and establish- ments.

This study reviews productivity growth in the five major transportation industries in the United States (airline, truck, rail, pipeline, and water) and the pooled transportation industry from to We measure the average productivity for these eight years by state in each transportation industry and the annual average productivity by transportation industry.

Productivity measurement and analysis are the main topics addressed in this book, which brings together contributions presented and discussed in two international workshops organized by the Statistics Directorate and the Directorate for Science, Technology and Industry (DSTI) of the OECD.

The developed productivity measurement and analysis framework is found to be simple to understand, detects problem easily and realistically, compatible with modern management systems and tools, and potentially adaptable to similar manufacturing companies. Keywords: Productivity measurement, Productivity analysis, Manufacturing company, Manpower.

Productivity measurement refers only to the. The OECD Measuring Productivity Manual is the first comprehensive guide to the various productivity measures aimed at statisticians, researchers and analysts involved in constructing industry-level productivity indicators.

This Manual presents the theoretical foundations to productivity measurement, and discusses implementation and measurement issues. Konishi and Nishiyama () (4) estimated labor productivity and TFP by aggregating data on service segments of companies listed on the first section of the Tokyo Stock Exchange (TSE) for each industry type in the service sector, and compared these two measures to examine the validity of labor productivity as a measure of productivity.

Transportation industries—the provision of transportation services, the manufacture of vehicles, and the construction of infrastructure—are major economic activities in themselves.

Annual productivity growth, which has been % in ,fell to % in And the growth of Cana­ dian manufacturing productivity has slowed relative to all other members of the Group of Seven rich countries. Cost competitiveness relative to the United States has declined particularly sharply.A common explanation of low productivity growth in the construction industry is lack of appropriate measures of productivity, which has led to attempts to develop better productivity measures for.Multifactor productivity rose in 44 of the 86 4-digit NAICS manufacturing industries inup from 32 of the industries in Among transportation industries, multifactor productivity increased in both air transportation and line-haul railroads.
