In order for businesses to succeed, management must keep a close eye on the bottom line. One of the many factors that directly affect a firm's profitability is worker productivity. The purpose of this research is to measure and study variability of construction labor productivity in building construction project and to demonstrate the conceptual benchmarking principles for construction labor productivity, by the use of indices and measures of benchmarking in labor productivity. Indices such as the disruption index (DI), performance ratio (PR), project management index (PMI) are calculated. The data were collected from two building projects in Thane, Mumbai, India sharing similar exogenous conditions and being similar in scope, size of components, specifications, quality requirements and design features. Literature review was conducted through referred researches and journals to show different findings and theories related to the productivity rates and the methods of improvement. The study shows that the productivity rates of the construction workers vary from one project to another, taking into consideration the type of the activity to be carried out and the surrounding work environment.
