|Title||A Construction Resources Management System for Gaza Strip Building Contractors|
Effective construction resources management process is a key to success of a construction project. Nowadays, successful management of construction resources has to be based on and updated information and processed utilizing a well designed construction resources management system. The aim of the thesis is to explore the local practice in construction resources management and develop a construction resources management system to facilitate the management of construction resources mainly in the building construction. Construction resources management related literature was generally reviewed; meanwhile some construction resources management software packages have been reviewed also. The researcher explores PHP programming language capabilities and utilizes these capabilities in developing a Construction Resources Management Software which he names "construction Resources management software"(CRMS). A survey questionnaire supported by interviews was used to explore the local practice in construction resources management. Seventy questionnaires were distributed to contractors of first; second, and third class, forty - eight questionnaires were received and analyzed. The study shows that most of contracting companies are considered the main obstacles in using computer in construction resources management are shortage of user-friendly computer program and no understanding for importance of computer program. The study clarified that improper cutting of material was one of the most important factors affecting on material waste. The survey also indicated that the stability of the work and work discipline was one of the most important factors affecting on increasing productivity. The study illustrated that the worker are not satisfied was one of the most important factors that may lead to affecting on reducing productivity. CRMS is a PC-based software which has been designed to run under PHP programming language. PHP programming language is used in developing CRMS. Full description of CRMS has been given with detailed implementation procedures. CRMS has been evaluated to test its suitability to local practice. Evaluation of CRMS has addressed both conceptual and practical issues. One of the main recommendations of this research is to encourage local contracting companies to have a construction resources management software package and use it in determining the required quantities of construction materials in order to get resources in time and required quantities, save time and minimize error.
