One of the points that must be taken into account during the planning of the appropriate resource management and especially construction materials managementis Transportation problem. the research goal is to find a solution for this problem based on the scientific basis of project management by using modern techniques that work to facilitate and accelerate the pace of work.The Geographic Information System (GIS) technology and the analytic tool (Solver) of MS Excel were used in the research to put a solution for the transportation problem.
The application of the proposed methodology steps in the research has contributed to find the distribution process for construction materials, (gravel, sand, reinforcement bars and cement) to the 10 project which were taken to be samples for the study that achieves the optimal transportation cost.
