This paper represents the improvement in operational productivity of Excavation by using Griffi’s Waiting Line Model which is one of the mathematical tool to improve the planning process in construction industry. The objective of this paper is to do sizing and matching based on zero idle time for both prime mover as well as associated unit to obtain optimum solution for particular operation. This research demonstrates the selective and timely use of established best practices, schedule reduction techniques, and management techniques decreases project completion time, improves project performance, and does not increase project cost.
