Growth in the global ready-mix market is driven by a rise in demand for sustainable infrastructure, an increase in urbanization and industrialization in developing countries, as well as a surge in construction activities in general. Timely delivered loads of ready-mix concrete are essential to assuring both continuous work at the construction site and a high-quality poured ready-mix. Real-time re-adjustment of planned orders is therefore of the utmost importance.
To achieve this just-in-time delivery, ready-mix concrete producers have to tackle a series of challenges. This webinar covers the major pain points for ready-mix producers that can be addressed with technology and digitalization. For instance, the plans are ever-changing, seeing orders being altered 15-20 times prior to execution, either in volume, delivery time, ingredients, or all of the above. Other possible changes could include the uploading and unloading, number of staff, and timing.
Furthermore, constructors need a constant pour to avoid setting issues. Ready-mix concrete has an extremely short product lifetime and time windows sometimes need to be as narrow as 10 minutes. With the short product lifespan, a certain rhythm and flexibility in deliveries are required, which can also take unforeseen circumstances into consideration. Therefore, the production, mixing, and transport need to take other factors into account, such as traffic or delays at the building site.
Finally, the number of staff on the building site impacts the pace of the unloading, making those challenging to anticipate. Unloading times can also be difficult to manage due to the variation of truck sizes and capacities, including different types of pumps and conveyors.
The industry experts will discuss how intelligent optimization software can help overcome these challenges, increase efficiency and drive agility while improving margins.
