Abstract

This paper presents an E-commerce system that is being used for construction material procurement. The paper identifies the limitations relating to information retrieving, recording and sharing in the traditional material procurement process. E-commerce applications that can improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the material procurement process in construction are then identified and described. Finally, the design and implementation of an E-commerce system for construction material procurement for trading construction materials in China is presented and discussed.
