Material Resources Management

Effective inventory management and optimization is the main goal of this module. While the module is designed to ensure adequate inventory at the required period of times and millstones, a project can be tempted to hold more inventory than is necessary to reduce hold times, thereby driving up inventory costs.

To ensure that materials are available for fabrication and installation on time;
To maintain the lowest possible material and product levels in the warehouse;
To plan construction activities and issue schedules.
