Materials management is an important component of the construction field. As such,organizations need to understand the effects of proper materials management methods for the effectiveness of project execution. A properly implemented materials management system can achieve the timely flow of materials and equipment to the jobsite, and thus ensure improved work face planning, increased labour productivity, better schedules, and lower overall project costs. Materials are the major expense in construction, so minimizing procurement cost reduces the overall project cost. The basic aim of the project lies in revising the existing material management practices in construction sites which require manual efforts and paper works, by incorporating automation for real time monitoring as well as controlling of materials and developing a web application.
Keywords: Material management, construction, Web application, Automation for real time monitoring.
