Current status of information technology application in construction material management and production

Facing the rapid change of science and technology associated with the application of achievements such as: Connecting things, virtual reality, big data, artificial intelligence… management, production of building materials The construction industry in general and construction material management enterprises in particular have become more comprehensive, scientific and transparent.

The application of new advances in information technology to the production of building materials helps businesses to fully, detail and accurately capture all necessary information at all times, while saving time. , human resources, improve labor productivity, product quality…

In recent years, Vietnam’s building materials industry has made remarkable progress, not only meeting the needs of the domestic market but also exporting to many countries around the world. However, the industry’s development process still faces many challenges such as inadequate forecasting, outdated production technology in some fields…

In order to sustainably develop the construction material manufacturing industry, many building material manufacturing enterprises have pioneered the application of modern production technologies and information technology to improve productivity and product quality. products to meet the increasing demands of consumers.

According to a representative of a cement manufacturing enterprise, right from the start of the construction of the plant, the enterprise has paid great attention to the selection of production technology, the management system, and the application of information technology in operating, production, sales… Therefore, all lines and machines in the factory are managed and operated through a machine system applying the most advanced information technology in the world today.

The factory’s production and monitoring parameters are all installed in the central control room (CCR). All activities of equipment in the production line are monitored & controlled from the CCR room through imported measurement & control devices.

In the factory, the investment in installing a camera system is directly linked to the offices of the departments in the factory to facilitate monitoring and adjustment in the production and operation processes. Mandarin. The information system has brought into play economic efficiency from the stage of production management to the sale stage, helping to control product quality most effectively, minimizing time, reducing input costs in the production process, contributing to product cost reduction, increase competitiveness in the market.

Or the application of software to manage the production line of unburnt bricks has also been taken into account by some businesses. Based on the production process, some information about production progress can be collected, tracked and statistic on production management software. These are: weight of materials mixed to create products, ratio of raw materials, time – speed of material mixing, pressing time, pressing force, the number of satisfactory bricks produced.

Production progress information is digitally converted by recording, analyzing and evaluating, providing a more detailed and complete view for factories on opportunities to increase production efficiency.

For example, with the amount of construction material management consumed in the production process, the factory calculates the production cost, the cost of a batch of bricks. The amount of raw materials consumed also helps the factory to know how much material is left in stock. The material statistics operation reduces labor waste for manual data collection and processing.

Another example, with information about the ratio of materials, time – mixing speed, pressing force reflects the quality of bricks produced. Parameters of the brick production process help to check the quality of bricks, saving time and being more accurate. Because, the units test the finished product through measuring the water absorption, the random load-bearing index of some finished bricks. And so it is possible to miss many unsatisfactory bricks. Meanwhile, if you check the production parameters, the factory can check the quality of every brick.

Catching up with 4.0 technology in Gateway thao dien for rent, a number of businesses have also applied virtual reality and augmented reality (AR, VR) technologies to their business and capture customer psychology, which is the application of virtual reality systems. online purchasing system over the Internet. Customers do not need to go directly to agents or suppliers to be able to choose the right product lines for their intended use.

Through the online sales channel, construction material management can update a lot of useful feedback from customers related to product quality, product packaging designs or competitive prices in the market. As a result, there will be timely adjustments and remedies to meet the essential needs of the market.

According to experts, the industrial revolution 4.0 creates favorable conditions for building material manufacturers to have the opportunity to make a breakthrough by applying technology to research and produce new types of building materials. , Environmental friendliness. Businesses need to take advantage of opportunities to develop if they do not want to be “removed”.

Sharing the same view, Mr. Tong Van Nga – Chairman of Vietnam Association of Building Materials said that the advantage of enterprises is the successful application of the value of science and technology in production in the industrial revolution 4.0. modernization, associated with innovation, perfecting corporate governance, keeping production stable, saving in input stages, improving productivity, saving costs in production and business, lowering product costs, creating products of higher quality, competitive designs in the market.

Therefore, in the coming time, the building materials industry needs to continue to promote the application of digital technology to reduce costs at all stages, from transactions and transportation to lower costs, increase competitiveness, deploying spearhead scientific and technological research directions, new materials, building smart cities associated with the use of smart materials…
