Principles of Material Management - MIT School of Distance Education

Description:

Material Management is the process of planning, executing, directing, coordinating, monitoring and controlling of all the processes that are associated with the materials required in the industries. There are certain principles that govern material management. So, whether you are a material manager or aspire to enter the field, you must be well-versed with all these principles of material handling. At MIT School of Distance Education (MIT-SDE), we train aspiring material managers of all the core concepts and principles of the field. So, if you wish to pursue a job-centric course, then apply for admissions in MIT-SDE right away. To know more information you can visit here: – PowerPoint PPT presentation

Title: Principles of Material Management - MIT School of Distance Education

MIT School of Distance Education
  • Principles of Material Management

2
  • Material Management is an important aspect of
    manufacturing and supply chain industry. It
    refers to the process of planning, executing,
    directing, coordinating, monitoring and
    controlling of all the processes that are
    associated with the materials required in the
    industries. It involves management of all
    activities from the inception of materials to
    their use in the manufacturing process.

3
  • There are certain principles that govern material
    management. Knowledge of these principles
    facilitates individuals to exercise effective
    material management. So, whether you are a
    material manager or aspire to enter the field,
    you must be well-versed with all these principles
    of material handling.

4
  • Planning Principle
  • According to this principle, the material
    manager must plan all the activities related to
    the handling of materials and storage activities
    in advance in order to achieve operational
    efficiency.

5
  • Gravity Principle
  • As per gravity principle, laws of gravity must
    be implemented for shifting of materials from one
    place to another.
  • Space utilization Principle
  • It involves making the most effective
    utilization of available space. This principle is
    taken into account in the work areas, storage
    areas as well as while transporting loads.

6
  • Safety Principle
  • Safe handling of the material is quite important
    to achieve maximum output without any hindrance.
    Different methods for safe and effective handling
    of the materials should be chosen under this
    principle.

7
  • Flexibility Principle
  • It aims at finding different methods to satisfy
    different conditions. A material manager must
    find search methods and equipments which are
    flexible enough to satisfy different types of
    conditions.

8
  • Ecology or Environmental Principle
  • Sometimes, methods of material handling can have
    adverse effects on the environment. Thus, Ecology
    principle ensures that while carrying out
    material handling, best alternative method must
    be adopted to minimize the effect on the
    environment.

9
  • System Principal
  • System principal states that the material
    manager should integrate as many handling
    activities as possible and practicable in a
    coordinated operational system. Different storage
    activities and activities related to the movement
    of materials can be integrated into a system of
    storage, packaging, shipping, transportation,
    production, inspection and many more.

10
  • Standardisation Principle
  • According to this principle, the material
    manager must standardize the type and side of
    handling equipment along with standardizing the
    handling methods.
  • Simplification Principle
  • This principle involves the usage of simplified
    methods with the removal of all the unnecessary
    stuff.

11
  • Maintenance Principle
  • This principle states that frequent maintenance
    and repairs can be prevented through proper
    preparation of plans.
  • Work Principle
  • This s principle aims at minimizing the handling
    work without affecting the operating productivity
    or service level.

12
  • Dead Weight Principle
  • As per dead weight principle, the ratio of
    mobile handling equipments dead weight to the
    weight of the load carried must be minimized.
  • Materials Flow Principle
  • This principle is also known as the principle of
    continuous flow. According to the principle, an
    operation sequence and layout should be created
    in such a way that material flow can be minimized.

13
Closing note
  • So, these were some of the core principles of
    material management that every material manager
    must know. At MIT School of Distance
    Education (MIT-SDE), we train aspiring material
    managers of all the core concepts and principles
    of the field. Our material management course lays
    impetus on the industry-specific knowledge. 

14
  • That is why we keep on updating our syllabus
    with development in the industry. Our candidates
    are trained by industry experts so that they can
    immediately get absorbed in the industry. So, if
    you wish to pursue a job-centric course, then
    apply for admissions in MIT-SDE right away.
