Abstract :

Materials management is a process for office activities in construction. The goal of materials management is to insure that construction materials are available at their point of use when needed. The materials management system attempts to insure that the right quality and quantity of materials are appropriately selected, purchased, delivered and handled on site in a timely manner and at a reasonable cost. Materials management is the system for planning and controlling all of the efforts necessary t the correct quality and quantity of materials are properly specified in a timely manner, are obtained at a reasonable cost and most importantly are available at the point of use when required. Materials represent a major expense in constructi improves opportunities for reducing the overall project costs. Poor materials management can result in increased costs during construction. Efficient management of materials can result in substantial savings in project costs. Small and medium sized constructions (SMCs) represent a large part of the construction sector. Large companies have the capacity and capability to use sophisticated information technology and management technology to control the labour and materials on projects. SMCs need help to implement control systems for labour and material that will improve performance on site. The research involves investigation of the impact of effective material management for SMCs on construction sites. Consideration is give through the supply chain up to completion of project. Materials can represent up to 70% of the project construction cost, hence any ways to reduce wastage and improve productivity will have major cost and time benefits. Now technologie and benefit contractors with lower costs and clients lower prices. The aim of study is to describe how SMCs can improve their performance in materials management, to reduce their costs, and to improve the project quality through ERP system. Case study and interview along with questionnaires has been used as the research method to develop the ideas in this paper.
