Abstract

The full potential of information-interchange technologies is not used in construction supply chains and information sharing is in many cases conducted using traditional methods. The objective of this case study is to pilot and analyze a new method of information sharing in the precast concrete element supply chain of a typical housing building project. This approach is based on logistics software, 3D BIM model, ERP systems and timely executed predefined procedures from each party. A unique code is assigned to each precast concrete element to enable better tracking and the delivery lots are planned well in advance. The aim is to save time, reduce errors and provide more accurate real-time information to all parties. The actual piloting covered part of an apartment building and showed that the method has potential, but further development and testing are still required before a larger piloting project or everyday use of the new procedure
