Many research efforts have made on various fields to develop a system which is able to process diverse data in terms of efficiency and accuracy as well as minimizing the error in data-processing. As known, it is obvious that procurement is crucial process for the plant projects due to its importance and impact on the performance. It is strongly required to develop an effective metadata system to assist optimal controlling data for the logistics discipline of procurement processes in plant projects. Therefore, the main purpose of this paper is to apply a metadata system for logistics of the plant projects. The suggested technical module is tested using sample data and evaluated its performance in terms of accuracy and running speed. The results of this research will be extended to the other processes of plant projects in order to achieve a ultimately process-based life-cycle plant project information management system
