5 Step Process
Focus on Process Steps
At CMMS, our goal is to ensure that every project is completed on schedule, under budget and with minimum material surplus. Experience has shown that the most effective way to control project costs is to start at the very beginning of the project and carry those savings throughout every phase of construction. CMMS materials management process parallels the critical functions of the customer to maximize productivity and lower costs - from conception to operation.
CMMS creates a Project Specific Electronic Catalog ensuring that the same material is used throughout the project. This avoids designing in long lead-time items and reduces the number of specialty items required.
The profitability and success of your project hinge on having the right material available in the correct quantities when they are needed. The unique combination of field construction experience and product knowledge allow use to produce accurate and detailed take-offs.
With CMMS, Construction can schedule material deliveries in work packages when and where they are needed. A CMMS Field Coordinator is available to work with your construction team, attend weekly planning meetings and coordinate procurement and delivery activities — anywhere in the world.
Real-time, any-time access to the project file is available via our Internet-based system, making global project management easier and more efficient. CMMS’ configurable components allow customers to tailor our system to fit specific project and reporting requirements.
