Abstract or Summary
  • Productivity Interfirm Comparison (PIC) is a simple method used to improve productivity at the firm level, where a number of firms operate in the same product line so that performance information on the firms can be compiled and compared. This results in identifying potential areas for improvement or exploitation. The comparison may unearth performance inefficiencies that, over time, may have insidiously come to be regarded as acceptable when quite the contrary is true. Three Saudi cement firms participated in this research whose purpose was to determine the usefulness and applicability of PIC for firms in Saudi Arabia. Data were collected from the participating firms and converted to ratios which were represented graphically and discussed in detail. In spite of the differences between Saudi Arabia and the United States, it was found that PIC is useful to firms in Saudi Arabia and many benefits could be gained from its use. This includes use at the national level in applying PIC in all industries. Experience in its use could be gained by affiliating or contracting with productivity improvement and measurement centers and organizations. PIC procedures can also be conducted internationally.
