Materials Management is divided into several Level 1 diagrams representing the major phases related to this wide-ranging activity. The first Level 1 diagram, which serves as a top level overview, summarizes all the activities in one diagram, with seven other Level 1 diagrams that show more detail for each process. The Level 2 diagrams represent the work processes for executing all these activities using SmartPlant and other software applications. There are a total of 24 swimlane diagrams for the Materials Management discipline, as follows:
