Factors Affecting Quality in Material ManagementBY: JoJustin | Category: Others | Post Date: 2010-02-23
Material management is a very important aspect of the organization or company that produces various kinds of things as part of the daily routine. The production capacity of the company can vary from time to time depending on the material availability and also the quality of the material that is available in the company. The materials are the resources for the completed products and one should make sure that the materials that are procured and used are of the best quality. This is because the finished product will be having either good or poor quality and the quality of this product will mainly depend on the quality of the materials that are the base for the final product.
There are various factors that play a role in the quality and material management. They are as follows:
1. Demand Estimation:
The demand has to be estimated first. This is the most important factor that has to be kept in mind. The reason for this is that the demand is what drives the companies to produce more finished products. The demand has to be kept in mind and should be a very important criterion in any organization. The reason for this is that the demand plays a major role in all the other factors of the company too and has a cascading effect.
2. Procurement or Indent for materials:
The procurement of the raw materials or the resources are also very important in the quality of the products and also for the material management. The procurement and indent and also the purchase are all very important and they all depend on each other. The reason for this is the fact that if one fails then there will be chaos in the company and work will come to a standstill.
3. Receive & verify materials:
The employee who is receiving and also verifying the materials are very important too. They should make sure that they are the best quality materials. Since these people are the ones who are viewing the materials for the first time, they should ensure that the products are very good and are the right ones for the use of the company.
4. Issue and use:
After receiving the materials, they have to be issued by the right authorities and also used in the tight method. This will make sure that the product is very good and of high quality.
5. Store materials, maintenance and repair:
The maintenance and the repair of the various aspects of the machines that are involved in the materials are all very important. The reason for this is if the materials are not stored properly or if the machines that use these materials are repaired, all these should be rectified. If this is not done, then it can cause the product to be of poor quality.
All these factors make the material management to be a very important part of the company. If the material management is not good, then the products manufactured by the company will be very poor in quality.
