ABSTRACT

Materials Management in the Construction Industry in Imo State have been investigated. In order to reduce wastage of construction materials, the study focused on Success Level in Achieving Effective Materials Management as the Dependent Variable (Y) by introducing five Independent Variables (X1 to X5) thus (X1) Management of Materials; (X2) Skilled Professionals; (X3) Control of Materials; (X4) Inventory Build-up and (X5) Motivation of workers. Three indigenous construction companies were used for the study; Alems Engineering Construction Company, Esie Engineering Construction Company and Hardel and Enic Construction Company.

Three different sets of questionnaire were developed, after interview with executives and workers in the three construction companies mentioned above. The questionnaires were distributed, and responses collected were then subjected to Multiple Regression

analysis to generate – R, R , F-ration, Student’s t-test and Standard error test.

The findings revealed that “Y” variable is significantly related to all the Xs variables (x1 to X5). The study also established a multiple regression model for the construction industry, which can be used to predict/forecast the values of “Y” when the values of Xs are known or given. It was finally revealed that these findings had great impact on the construction industry; the contractors; the client/owners; the Nigerian economy and the common /average man on the street.

We therefore conclude that the five independent variable of the study (X1 to X5) contribute and have significant effect on (Y) – success level in Achieving Effective Materials Management in the construction industry.
