Purchase and Storage Management


Storage of Materials on Construction Site

Purchase management refers to the process by which an organisation procures the materials and supplies required for completion of construction products. The actions and decisions of those involved affecting everything - from costs to completion dates to the quality of the final result. Of course, the required materials and supplies the construction project demands must also be appropriately stored. Which is why these two critically-important duties are unbreakably bound to one another. The more effective the purchase and storage management strategy, the greater the efficiency and potential of the entire project.
