A Hybrid Solution Approach for Ready-Mixed Concrete

The ready-mixed concrete delivery problem can be modeled as an integer multi-commodity flow problem on a time-space network (with some similarities to the model proposed by Hoffman and Durbin ([9])). The nodes in the time-space network represent the construction sites at which concrete needs to be delivered at discrete points in time.

Automated Multi-Plant Scheduling of Ready-Mixed Concrete ...

Ready-Mixed Concrete (RMC) is a perishable product; hence, specifications such as ASTM C94 recommend the delivery of RMC under 1.5 hours to ensure the quality. It is known that certain scheduling practices and driving behaviors lead to operational inefficiencies and poor-quality RMC. We propose a model to schedule RMC trucks while maximizing both the job coverage and profit, as well

The ready mixed concrete—RMC-- consists of coarse and fine aggregates, ce-ment, sand, water and specified admixtures. It is used for construction, such as pil-lars, beams, slabs and walls, etc. The fresh RMC has a life span of 90 minutes and thus cannot be produced and stored in advance. It is a perishable and non-storable material.
