According to the traditional decision makings, the project scheduling and material ordering were regarded as separate problems. However, it should be noted that integrated planning of the above mentioned issues can improve the execution costs of projects to a significant extent. This improvement has been remarkably taken into consideration within the last years. Thus, the authors aim to provide the interested readers with a concise review on the corresponding problem literature, from the advent to the present, in order to investigate the evolution course. The review aims to bring out branches for further developments by addressing the liable gaps.
