This paper reviews research and development activities conducted over the past few decades on construction equipment management practices. It studies the prevention of vacuum created by the lack of proper material handling at construction sites. It is on the analysis of factors that affect the effective material management in building construction projects. Materials management is an important tool and factor in project management and control to improve productivity in construction projects. In order to execute a building project effectively, it is important to have the right materials in the right place at the right time. Many researchers have shown that construction materials and equipment can make up more than 60-70% of the total cost for a typical construction project. Improper handling and maintenance of materials on site can adversely affect project cost. Materials management practices need to be implemented on construction industry projects. A properly implemented materials management program can achieve a timely flow of materials and equipment for employment, resulting in better planning, increased labour productivity, better scheduling and lower project costs. In addition, proper maintenance of the material component improves the productivity and cost efficiency of a project and helps in completing construction projects on time and efficiently. One of the major problems of delay in construction projects is maintenance of materials and equipment. Therefore, it is necessary to study and implement material management practices in all construction industries. However, this review focuses on the various content management methods adopted on paper sites and discusses the advantages and disadvantages of content management on construction sites.
