The Electronic Productivity Submission System (ePSS) Hands-On Training and Basic Concept in Construction Productivity Improvement in February 2019

We are pleased to invite members to a training session on the Electronic Productivity Submission System (ePSS) conducted by BCA. The aim is to familiarise companies with the various functions of the ePSS and other key areas such as definition and measurement of site productivity. Participants will also go through hands-on training on the system as part of the learning process.

The Electronic Productivity Submission System (ePSS) is an online portal set up by BCA for builders to monitor and submit the manpower usage data for their projects on a monthly basis. BCA collects these productivity data of building projects to calculate the industry average project productivity for different building categories and assess a project’s productivity performance. This also allows the builder to set improvement targets for their future projects.

The submission of productivity data to BCA via ePSS is compulsory for main contractors with projects GFA of 5,000m2 or more. However all main contractors and subcontractors are welcome to sign up and learn more about productivity measurement and the Construction Productivity and Capability Fund (CPCF).

Details of the training session by BCA officers are as follow:
