A model-based production planning and control method supporting delivery of cast-in-place concrete
2008 (English)Conference paper, Presentation (Refereed)
This paper combines model-based design and construction techniques with principles from location based planning methods. Both concepts are applied in a practical study in which a model-based method is developed for the planning and control of cast in place concrete deliveries to the building site. The overall aim of this paper is to show a method that can be used to make the planning and control of the delivery process for cast in place concrete more efficient. The paper shows examples of changes in the way the concrete delivery process is handled by different actors. Using model-based working methods allow users to have better control of how for example material properties, such as concrete drying time, affect the planning and control of the delivery process. The paper first provides a background of the research including a description of the case study project. This section is followed by a description of the various methods and systems used in the case study. The application of the method is discussed, based on interviews with both a ready-mixed concrete supplier and a contractor that took part in the case study. The paper is concluded with suggestions for how the method can be further developed and improved to support the scheduling and control of cast in place concrete delivery.
