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: Individual Electronic Project Catalogue.

CMMS: Streamlined Management of Materials and Pricing.

Builds a detailed, comprehensive Individual Electronic Project Catalogue that lists the specific products to be used throughout the project. This ensures use of material only from approved manufacturers, consistent pricing, minimises the number of specialty and non-stock items requests, and enables entry of accurate lead times for each item (including manufacture time + transit time + customs time + a little cushion).

Customer: Production of Drawings.

CMMS: Material Take Offs (MTO).

WEA uses its unique combination of field construction experience and product knowledge to produce an accurate and detailed Material Take Offs (MTO) from the electrical drawings.

Customer: Construction Schedule.

CMMS: Development of Work Plan.

Client’s Construction Schedule is used to create the Purchase Schedule for Material, the Production Schedule for Manufacturers and ultimately, the Work Plan for the Release of Material. This enables construction contractors to input the Required On-Site Dates for areas/work packages into CMMS. A Work Plan is developed based on the Required On-Site Date to determine purchasing and inventory activities.

Customer: Field Material Release.

CMMS: Electronic Release of Material.

Reduces project investment and field material management costs as well as material surplus through electronic release of material to the construction crew on an as-needed basis. Workers sign for exactly what they need. This also lowers measuring and cutting time during installation (pre-cut cables) and reduces surplus.

Customer: Project Status Review.

CMMS: Review.

Real-time, any-time access to the project file is available via the web-based system, making global project management easier and more efficient. Configurable components of CMMS allow clients to tailor our system to fit their specific project and reporting requirements.
