Characteristics of a Web-Based Integrated Material Planning and Control System for Construction Project Delivery.

For over 40 years that information and communication technology has been integrated in the construction industry, the adoption and use of the internet has been relatively low and slow. The use of the internet for the Nigerian construction industry has been mainly used for communication rather than for many other things the platform has to offer. The purpose of this study is to examine the characteristics of a web-based integrated material planning and control system for construction project delivery. The study used case diagrams and a MVC model in designing the platform for the web-based system. The study revealed that using a web-based system can have the characteristics of ensuring good inventory, good retrieval system, notifications and prompting system and a third party viewing for good over-sight of construction projects. The study recommended more innovative use of the internet for solving many challenges confronting the construction industry.
