Abstract - The research project was focused on the evaluation of the productivity in a structural steel installation project in Puerto Rico. The two projects evaluated have similar site conditions and safety requirements. The installation process of the respective projects is different because the erection activity used different employee man-power whether subcontracted or in house. It was demonstrated in this research that all factors have to be considered because for a project to be productive the adequate use and analysis can mean the difference between a profitable or non-profitable project. For this research the structural steel industry was evaluated with the proper use of productivity data analysis from the accounting process and documentation of two projects respectively. Key Terms - Productivity, Profit Margin, Total Quality Management, Subcontractor.
