Abstract

Productivity is defined as the optimization (or maximization of economic utilization) of all available resources, investigation into the best known resources through creative thinking, research and development, and use of all possible improvement techniques and methods. This study aimed at identifying the factors affecting total productivity and also on the determination of total productivity at Kozhikode Diesel Power Plant (KDPP) located in Kerala state, India. It also aimed at suggesting guidelines for improvements in total productivity of the plant. The data have been collected from the company records and the total productivity values are determined for the period 2010-2013. Regression and correlation analysis have been used to find the relationship between various inputs and total productivity. It is found that raw material input has the strongest correlation with total productivity. The findings of this study will serve as a warning signal to the management of KDPP and other diesel power plants for enhancing productivity considering all the factors of production.
