Abstract

The ineffective and effective management of construction materials affects construction stakeholders, the construction industry and its environment. Time is a crucial concept, which the construction student must learn to exploit in order to efficiently plan, procure and utilize materials on construction projects. Inadequate inventory should not catch construction students unawares especially when they become construction professionals. The study aimed to examine the teaching of lead time reduction in material inventory planning in the construction education. The study utilized an in-depth literature review and the conceptualization of frameworks on lead time reduction in material inventory planning in the construction education. The study revealed that lead time reduction in inventory planning of construction materials takes into account factors such as ICT, Supplier, Project details, Construction professional, Environment and Construction company factors in helping the construction student effectively understanding construction material management. In conclusion, the study would help to enrich the construction education curriculum by building the knowledge base of construction students in order to be systematic in planning, procuring and control of construction materials leading to a better construction industry and environment.
