The Materials Consumption Management on building sites is an important tool for improving the performance of companies. Although the companies recognize this potential, few of them are managing in a systematic method and therefore do not enjoy fully the benefits from it. This work aims to achieve a diagnosis regarding the Materials Consumption Management on construction sites, with the carry out of a questionnaire survey based on the main requirements considered relevant in a Consumption Management System. This questionnaire was executed to a sample of 14 construction companies engaged mainly in the metropolitan region of Belo Horizonte, of different size and with or without Quality Management System. As a result, most of the construction companies do not meet fully the requirements of a Materials Consumption Management System on construction sites, because there is not a systematic collection of indicators of losses / consumption of materials on building sites or no establishment of the goals of consumption / losses of materials based on a single database of the company or there is not the dissemination of information obtained under the building site to the other departments of the company or partners involved in the process of implementing the works. According to this diagnosis, 50% of the participating companies in the research do not have Materials Consumption Management System, 7.1% are incipient, 35.7% have a Semi-Structured System and only 7.1% of these construction companies (1 company) has a Structured Management System. Although this topic is relevant today, there is much to improve to implement, in fact, a Full Consumption System.
