Emerging project management methods for construction projects generate new kinds of challenges for the delivery process of materials. The rationale of such methods is to create short-term schedules, based on a constraint analysis of resources, for project tasks. This approach has two requirements for material deliveries: transparency of material availability and short response times in the supply chain. We propose a potential solution for managing the material logistics of construction projects. The empirically validated solution proposes a shipment tracking-based approach to provide inventory transparency, and a pro-active delivery approach for efficient material deliveries.
