Material Management Project on Board
In the construction industry, one of the common challenges people face is issues with their material management.
Material management functions can be generally categorized as follows:
1. Defining material requirements for the project.
2. Vendor evaluation.
4. Storage on site.
5. Site distribution.
Major Materials that are specific to the project, and include things like switchgear, lighting fixtures, and alarm systems. Also Miscellaneous Materials, off-the-shelf items like cables, fittings, conduits, ties, and straps.
The necessary materials need time to be fabricated specifically for this job, so they need some time to be put together. Waiting too long to order these can lead to major delays in the construction process.
A simple solution to this is to determine what will be needed further in advance, then scheduling everything to arrive a day before it is actually needed. Many distributors are willing to work with you to break up the project into a schedule of shipments based on what is needed when. Activities in construction work which will be mode lied in “work break down structure” using object-oriented programming. In this case, detailed information about the materials needed will be presented. Vendors information system. Forecast of materials needed and lead time needed. Reporting facilities on the progress of the work, and materials used and materials needed
By following appropriate steps and a defined materials management strategy, you can increase project efficiency and reduce costs across your construction projects.
