Planning for Equipment


Planning for Equipment

The three most important resources that form the foundation of construction projects are manpower, materials and equipment. Theoretically, these three resources alone are all that’s needed to carry out and complete projects successfully. But at the same time, discrepancies in the procurement or use of any of these resources can render the rest redundant. Equipment planning is process whereby all key equipment requirements are identified, analysed and proactively planned for accordingly. Selection of vendors, storage, allocation of acquired resources and so on – all considerations that must be addresses in detail. The more effective and complete the planning process, the greater the likelihood of a smooth and successful project.
