Lack of primary empirical data within the Architecture, Engineering and Construction industry has in the past hindered developments of academic research in the field of performance measurement in construction. This paper presents quantitative analysis of construction production data captured through mobile information systems and provides empirical evidence that data captured through mobile devices has the potential to deliver new and enhanced methods for performance measurement and enhancement. Relational data gathered through mobile devices is used to generate metrics against which construction issue resolution performance is measured. Paper also discusses various methods for early identification and visualisation of performance deviations. Research approach and findings can be used for the development of academic performance measurement frameworks and also as an evidence base for further development by industry in the field of performance enhancement. The paper contributes insight regarding innovative ways to interrogate construction production data and provide stimulus to others to develop the methods and approaches taken.
