Material Approval Request
Submit and manage Material Approval Requests. Approval of material and products is an essential process on a construction project. It involves ensuring compliance with requirements and specifications. The submittals of Material Approval Requests consist of information provided by contractors to the design professional for approval of equipment or materials before they are fabricated and delivered to the project. Submittals can be presented in various formats, such as shop drawings, cut sheets on equipment, and material samples.
On a project with single or multiple contractors, it is critical to manage the submission and review of material approval requests. Morta provides templates to cater for this process starting with a simple form for submitting material approval requests. This form includes an attachment of the files, a title, the date, as well as defining the vendor and manufacturer of this MAR. The form can be tailored to include more details if required.
Review and track of the submitted material approval requests can then happen using a simple table. In this table, the issuer can manage and update the details as well as track responses. Reviewers can view the files along with the associated details after which they can mark their comments on the pending submissions.
For the list to be streamlined and error-free, Morta offers a space where you can manage the library behind the data used to identify or tag the MARs. These are part of your project's reference data and can form the drop-down menus of vendors or manufacturers. You can manage your picklists in a simple process.
This use-case belongs to the 'Procurement and Material Management' solution and is thus related to use-cases like Purchase Orders Management, Vendor Management and Invoice Management.
