How External Factors Affect Productivity in Brick Factories
Bricks are an essential building material in the construction industry since the very beginning in Bangladesh. Mirpur Ceramic Works Limited (MCWL) has been successfully manufacturing bricks, blocks, pavers, etc for over 50 years. However, a few external factors such as poor quality of raw material supplies, availability of skilled and semi-skilled labour and change in weather conditions adversely affect MCWL’s productivity levels. This research intends to investigate why and how these factors are affecting productivity. It will be a causal study aimed to measure if the existence of or a change in one variable causes or leads to a change in the other variable. The size of the research will be 223. Questionnaires containing 15 questions will be distributed among the 223 employees of the company. The questionnaires’ validity and reliability have been tested before by scholars and the alpha values are available. The SPSS software and step-wise regression analysis will be performed to analyze the collected data. This study will offer an insight thorough a “snapshot” view of a particular period of time, but not an ongoing picture of the changing scenario. This research work will be xpected to make a significant contribution as such study has not been conducted before in the context of MCWL.
