English Abstract

Traditional methods are still used in the world of material management, although they neither adequately meet site needs nor suits the overall management process.

There is a consumption of labor’s capacity, which affects productivity and is time-consuming in material reception and inspection.

In addition, there is a difficulty in obtaining good inventory control and accurate information about items.

While there are some large companies around the world that apply modern systems, the majority of companies do not pay much attention to this matter.

Therefore, this research represents an attempt to develop a Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) system to solve the administrative problems facing material management construction sites and facilitate tasks for project managers.

The methodology that has been adopted in this research included reviewing previous studies, a field survey and interviews with a number of site experts.

Also, a questionnaire has been constructed to summarize the main problems of the management process.

The results revealed that there is no application of modern systems, such as RFID.

In addition, there are some problems facing material management on site, like time consumption, using excessive labor, poor inventory control, absence of databases and delay of receiving reports about material inspection.

The study recommends the application of Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) system, as using a very accurate system for managing materials on construction sites is essential to prevent problems that could affect the management process.
