When you start a project do you make sure you have everything you need to finish your task? Do you dive in, start your project, discover you’re short on some things and have to waste time to run to the store? Your time and budget will stay in line when you have your supplies handy – the right parts in the right spot.
We will continue on with my nine-blog session on Project Management. I will expand on each management segment of my past blog on Project Management.
Procurement Management – Most all projects need parts and supplies. This list will range from a computer – for data work – to parts you may need from a hardware store. For your project to succeed, your supplies must be delivered on time and within the project’s budget. You must have a procurement item list for the project’s inventory. Don’t forget the vendors list to contact when you need more parts and supplies.
And don’t forget the small stuff. For my project, I also need a pencil. If I am settled in and can’t find a simple pencil around me, I must stop, get up and search for one. It’s just a cheap, simple tool, the pencil, but important for my work.
Do you have all your parts and supplies ready? Do you have ‘what you think’ are the insignificant tools and supplies ready? Forget one and your project may suffer.
Procurement Project Management Check List
1) Create a parts and supplies list for the project – don’t forget the vendor’s contact information
2) When supplies and parts arrive, put them in an easy place to access and find – create the inventory list to keep on hand – mark off all parts used and be watchful not to use up all your supplies before the project has finished
3) Order supplies when the count is low – resupply ahead of time
4) Make sure the parts and supplies are within the projects time and budget management
