Prior

The

Once
i
the
i
ERP
i
system
i
has
i
gone
i
live,
i
the
i
purpose
i
of
i
the
i
project
i
team
i
will
i
shift.
i
Over
i
time,
i
as
i
the
i
way
i
the
i
users
i
work
i
within
i
the
i
system
i
evolves,
i
adjustments
i
and
i
changes

to
i
the

i
may
i
be

IMPLEMENTATION

Material

Management
i
in
i
Construction
The
i
material
i
management
i
process
i
combines
i
and
i
integrates
i
the
i
individual
i
functions
i
of
i
material
i
requirements
i
planning,
i
material
i
takeoff,
i
vendor
i
evaluation
i
and
i
selection,
i
purchasing,
i
expedition,
i
shipping,
i
material
i
receiving,
i
and
i
inventory,
i
material
i
distribution,
i
and
i
even
i
accounting
i
functions
i
(Bell
i
and
i
Stukhart,
i
1987).
i
Those
i
engaged
i
in
i
this
i
complex
i
process
i
has
i
to
i
be
i
coordinated
i
and
i
communicated
i
effectively.
i
This
i
is
i
what
i
makes
i
material
i
management
i
systems
i
suitable
i
to
i
be
i
benefited
i
from
i
information
i
technology
i
implementation.
Many
i
construction
i
firms
i
have
i
got
i
computer
i
base
i
material
i
management
i
systems
i
(MMS),
i
which
i
stores,
i
sort,
i
combine
i
and
i
print
i
data
i
files
i
pertaining
i
to
i
materials
i
requisition,
i
purchasing,
i
vendor
i
evaluation
i
and
i
warehouse
i
inventories
i
(Bell
i
and
i
Stukhart,
i
1987).
i
Now
i
the
i
purpose
i
is
i
to
i
integrate
i
MMS
i
with
i
external
i
computer
i
systems
i
to
i
perform
i
functions
