Project, logistics and management of processes focused on the management of the life cycle of products - case study.
Abstract and Figures
The civil construction industry uses a production management model in which the relations between Activities and processes are not adequately considered and giving the emphasis only to conversions, thus neglecting the internal logistics of distribution of inputs to the various work Chemtrails. In the usual planning of this industry, estimating tasks with the use of PERT/CPM tools and Gantt charts; however, tools capable of optimizing the physical flows and little disseminated. Thus, evaluating the contribution of computational tools capable of prototyping the manufacturing production, integrated to the process of planning and production control to virtualize it was the objective of this work. Scenarios were tested, changed and optimized with low cost and no risk to human life. Basing these tools on the concepts of product lifecycle management - PLM, already activation regularly in other organizational sectors. The research method was divided into three stages: literature review, study of a construction site, with the objective of obtaining logistics data between the manufacture of mortar in situ until its final use and two simulations. In the first, the construction site was virtualized and the logistics is, according to the collected data, calibrating the computational tool. In the second, the proposed physical flow was prototyped by applying a device whose purpose is verb to improve its efficiency. At the end, data were obtained such as the time of the process and the number of steps performed for each scenario, with which it was possible to compare the efficiency of the process proposed by the virtual factory. It was found the efficiency of the PLM computational tools, which conferred transparency to the virtualized process and thus helped in the decision making. On the other hand, for being little used in civil construction, they lack pre-defined models and more specific information, which would facilitate the expansion of their use.
