The Swedish IT-stomme (IT-structure) project is a two year research project, which is aimed at applying product models in practice and developing modelling tools for cast in place concrete structures. Implementations and applications discussed in this paper are mainly driven by the interests from a ready mixed concrete supplier who identified product modelling as a threat and as an opportunity for its business process. A number of product model dimensions is discussed that result from combining different software applications. An example of a potential nth dimension of product model development and use is given, in addition to a product model's 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th dimension. The nth dimension is illustrated by integrating a product model with results from a program used to calculate the optimal drying process for concrete slabs. This paper concludes by discussing main challenges for the uptake of product models in practice in relation to findings and efforts from the IT-stomme project.
