An interest in the problems of improving productivity in all the processes of construction led to an ASCE invitational conference on the subject in August 1976. The proceedings of that conference, preprinted for the participants, offered valuable suggestions for improving productivity, as reviewed herein. The conference itself created a momentum within ASCE, its newly established Engineering Management Division, and many of its members who continue to press for improved productivity as an engineering problem, a management problem.
