Abstract

With rapid advances of data technology and internet within recent years, implementation of E-Ticketing has increased in different areas such as inspection activities in construction projects. By utilizing sufficient software and electronic systems, electronic track of construction material delivery becomes possible, which leads to many benefits such as cost reduction, greater transparency, productivity improvement, etc. For example, E-ticketing could be useful in tracking delivery of construction materials such as concrete by providing haul report, travel time, tonnage of the material as well as enrichment of the records of the project. In this study, different characteristics and barriers of implementing E-Ticketing for tracking construction materials’ delivery were investigated and an integrated framework for monitoring the delivery process to achieve efficient inspection approach was developed. For this purpose, different E-Ticketing implementation strategies were described and then the challenges and solutions for successful E-Ticketing implementation for material delivery were expanded and studied. This paper contributes to assist service providers which intend to implement E-Ticketing to successfully adopt this service to their system.
