LES APPROVISIONNEMENTS EN GRANULATS ET LIANTS - GESTION ET COUT DES STOCKS

AFTER RECALLING THE ESSENTIAL PART THAT AGGREGATES AND BINDERS PLAY IN THE COST OF ROAD STRUCTURES, THE AUTHORS ANALYZE THE DIVERSITY OF THEIR ORIGINS AND CHARACTERISTICS AS A FUNCTION OF THE TECHNIQUES, TRANSPORT MODES SPECIFIC TO EACH AND THE PRIMORDIAL INFLUENCE OF THE LATTER ON THE FINAL PRICE. MODERN STORAGE TECHNIQUES AND EQUIPMENT ARE DESCRIBED, AND EMPHASIS IS PLACED ON THE COST, OFTEN UNDERESTIMATED, OF HANDLING IN TRANSIT AND OF THE PRESERVATION OF THE BASIC INGREDIENTS. IN CONCLUSION, STRESS IS PLACED ON THE IMPORTANCE OF SUPPLY SERVICES IN THE STRUCTURE OF ALL FIRMS AND ON THE NEED FOR A CLOSE COOPERATION WITH THE CLIENT WITH A VIEW TO DETERMINING A POLICY GOVERNING BASIC OPERATIONS AND TO REDUCING COSTS.
