Abstract

This paper emphasis on the major drawback in construction sites like diminishing of equipments, shrinkage, wasting of time in searching of equipment and increasing equipments utilization in construction sites. Proficient administration of the supply chain to the materials utilized within development ventures might fundamentally lessen material cost and improve in success meeting project timescales, exactly where valuable tools and equipment are the key to a successful construction project. Ensuring representatives from conceivably unsafe circumstances will be a critical worry from claiming businesses, the place modern mishaps and harm would at any point introduce peril. So we have designed tool and inventory tracking system with the help of RFID framework which is traceable and will help the manager to track all of his tools on the construction sites. The system consists of RFID tag, RFID reader, sensors, battery, microcontroller, ESP8266, and Node MCU.
