    Abstract

    Precast concrete is increasingly used in the construction and the supply chain needs to work together to realise the benefits of the precast concrete. The challenges include the improvement of production processes, storage and delivery of the products to construction sites so that benefits of offsite production is efficiently achieved. The industry can benefit from the use of Building Information Modelling (BIM) provided major issues are addressed. A combined effort by manufacturers, researchers, and software vendors will be needed. Key areas for future research and development involve interoperability, compatibility, and standardization, as well as the development of new software tools to take advantage of the capacity that BIM frameworks already provide.
