ANALYSIS OF LABOR OVERTIME AND PRODUCTIVITY IN CONSTRUCTION PROJECTS
A project can be defined as a sequence of activities that should be carried out within a set period with a limited allocation of resources. In construction projects, timely completion is dependent on labor productivity as part of the needed resources. However, several studies indicate that construction projects are often affected by low labor productivity. This study aimed to examine how working overtime affects the productivity of construction projects. For the purpose of this analysis, overtime refers to discharging responsibilities beyond the normal working hours, after 1600 hours without any minimum length of time. Observations and interviews were used to collect data related to Dam Development Project. The observation was conducted for one month on 48 workers with overtime of 2 hours per day. The result showed that productivity was reduced by 9.50% - 11.41% while wages increased by 69.20% - 72.84%.
