Classification and codification of materials are steps in maintaining stores in a systematic way. - Materials are classified in such way that storing, issuing and identifying of materials become easy. -Generally, materials are classified on the basis of their nature. -Materials can also be classified on the basis of quality and utility. For example, materials may be classified as raw materials, consumable stores, components, spares and tools. Thus classifying materials on different bases such as nature, quality and utility is called classification of materials. -For the purpose of identification and convenience in storage and issue of materials, each item of material is given a distinct name. ---Such a process of giving distinct names and symbols to different items of materials is called codification of materials. -Good store-keeping requires proper classification and codification of various items of stores on stock. Stores are generally classified either by their nature or by their usage. -The former method of classification or classification by the nature of materials is most commonly used. Under this method of classification, the various items of stores are divided into specific groups like construction materials, belting materials, consumable stores, spare parts and so on

**CLASSIFICATION AND CODIFICATION OF MATERIALS** For facilitating identification of materials,each item of stores is given a distinct name. Similar items are divided into sub-groups and a number of sub-groups are classified under major groups. this is classification. Stores are usually classified either by nature or usage of stores. Codification is the procedure for assigning symbols for each item in accordance with a proper plan. Thanks

Therefore there should be some mean of identifying them hence Coding is used. Criteria for Effective Coding Code should be Simple Code should be unique Coding should be compact, concise and consistent Code should be sufficiently flexible to meet future demands Type of Codification 1. Alphabetical 2. Numerical 3. Alpha-Numerical 4. Color code Material Type of Material- 1. Direct Material 2. Indirect Material 1. Raw Material 2. WIP 3. Finish Gods
