What is Productivity – Operation Management

What is Productivity?

It is how much output you get in how much input. (time)
for e.g., If you are studying for two hours then time two hour is input and how much chapter you have completed in two hours is your output.

Note:- Productivity is not directly propotional to the time . But it is how efficient you are during that time.

In other terms
Productivity is commonly defined as a ratio between the output volume and the volume of inputs. In other words, it measures how efficiently production inputs, such as labour and capital, are being used in an economy to produce a given level of output.

Enemy of Productivity:

Not having deadline.
Example:- Suppose you are driving from Delhi to Punjab and if you know it will take two hour. You will maintain the speed automatically that you can reach to Punjab in given time .
That is the effect of deadline on your productivity.
