Materials management is involving the planning and execution of supply chains to meet the material requirements of LRH. These requirements include controlling and regulating the flow of material while simultaneously assessing variables like demand, price, availability, quality, and delivery schedules. Material managers determine the amount of material required and held in stock, plan for the replenishment of these stocks, create inventory levels for each type of item, and communicate information and requirements to procurement operations and the extended supply chain. Materials management also involves assessing material quality to make sure it meets LRH demands in line with an excellent patient care schedule and obviously at the lowest cost.
