Construction Material Management

CMMS Process

On a global scale, organisations are facing difficult economic challenges in the construction of new facilities. There is demand for continuous improvement in the productivity, profitability and quality control of such projects, of all sizes. In using CMMS, our goal is to ensure that every project is completed on schedule, under budget and with minimum material surplus.

The Right Material, At the Right Time

Customer: Design & Material Specification.

CMMS: Streamlined Management of Materials and Pricing.

A detailed, comprehensive Individual Electronic Project Catalog is built listing the specific products to be used throughout the project. This becomes the “go-to” source for electrical material at all stages of the project.

The catalog ensures that:
• Only material from approved manufacturers is used
• Pricing is consistent
• The number of specialty and non-stock items requests is kept to a minimum
• Accurate lead times are entered for each item including the time to manufacture + transit time + customs time (+ a little cushion).

Customer: Production of Drawings.

CMMS: Material Take Offs (MTO).

Wholesale Electric CMMS professionals use their unique combination of field construction experience and product knowledge to produce an accurate and detailed Material Take Offs (MTOs) from the electrical drawings. These MTOs list the materials, their quantities and types and where they are to be installed on the site.

Customer: Construction Schedule.

CMMS: Development of Work Plan.

CMMS uses the customer’s Construction Schedule to create the Purchase Schedule for Material, the Production Schedule for Manufacturers and ultimately the Work Plan for the Release of Material.

Construction contractors can enter the Required On-Site Dates for areas/work packages into the CMMS system.

A Work Plan based on the Required On-Site Date is developed which determines purchasing and inventory activites.

Customer: Field Material Release.

CMMS: Electronic Release of Material.

Electronic release of material to the construction crew on an as-needed basis reduces project investment and field material management costs as well as material surplus.

Construction workers pick up and sign for work packages containing exactly what they need for the work tasks at hand according to the Construction Schedule. With the help of CMMS Cable Management, cable is pre-cut to the tasks in order to reduce measuring and cutting time during installation and to reduce surplus.

Customer: Project Status Review.

CMMS: Review.

Real-time, any-time access to the project file is available via our web-based system, making global project management easier and more efficient.

The configurable components of the CMMS allow customers to tailor our system to fit their specific project and reporting requirements.
