Abstract
Construction inventory management is a means by which construction companies keep track of materials, labour, tools and plant. In Construction industry, there are many management techniques which are being followed for monitoring the progress of work and for completing the project in time. Inventory management is one such technique by which the material and labour requirement of a construction firm can be tracked. The onsite locating and tracking of men and materials using traditional methods often results in missing out items, unreliability, increase in construction cost and error prone because of manual involvement. Advances, in computer sciences, and information technology, has helped a lot in the inventory management. This project aims to develop a simple and cost-effective method of managing inventory for small scale projects by combining together different management tools such as a QR codes, MS excel and primavera. A simple building plan has been taken, and the detailed estimate of all the items of work are calculated. With this quantity the required materials and labour are calculated using the standard analysis of quantities. With the labour outturn required for each item of work, an excel sheet has been prepared indicating the period of completion of each item of work. As
and when the work progresses the measurement of work done are recorded at site and the weekly quantity of work done is entered in the excel sheet, and once this is entered it will automatically display the quantity of material like cement, aggregate, sand utilized and the balance availability. By tracking this the store in-charge will come to know when the material recoupment has to be done. All these details are entered in QR code which has a transparency and enables all who are involved in the project to know about the daily balance availability of material sitting at office.

Key words: Inventory management, Management techniques, QR code, MS Excel, Primavera
