Opening Lecture
Digitalisation, Big Data, Artificial Intelligence
Digitalisation makes the world readable for machines, artificial intelligence helps to analyse the data it generates. The talk explains how this technology works, presents possible applications and discusses its pros and cons.

Keynote
The Economic Efficiency of Investments in Digitalisation
While investing in machinery can be relatively easily quantified (investment costs → output), an evaluation of the economic efficiency of investments in digitalisation is not so easy. How can you quantify savings in the overall process by investing in new CAD versions, smart production, mobile devices, integration systems to compare them with the actual costs?The lecture shows how such a profitability calculation can be realized before investment decisions are made.

Model-Based Data Exchange with IFC4precast - A Completely New Concept for the Precast Industry
IFC4precast is a completely new concept for Building Information Modeling (BIM) data exchange, especially for the prefab industry. The digitisation of the precast industry proceeds with big steps, to support and integrate the involved software systems like CAD, MES, PPS and ERP better in this evolution. Several strong and well-known software vendors of this industry came together and founded the new buildingSMART working group IFC4precast, initiated by customers.

Workshop 2: Planning
MOTUS Building System – New Method for Producing Prestressed Hollow-Core Slabs
Hollow-core slabs are up to 40% lighter than solid slabs and require less concrete to manufacture. For these reasons, they are widely used worldwide. However, the width of the slabs is strictly limited by the manufacturing process. Reinforcement meshes and connecting reinforcements can only be used to a limited extent, which often makes hollow core slabs unsuitable for construction systems in earthquake regions. Now, an innovation from Vollert has changed all that.

Avoid Errors During Precast Planning in the Factory with a Rule-Based Expert System
In addition to collisions and attributes, a model checker "Allcheck" integrated in PLANBAR also checks specific engineering and precast characteristics during planning - such as "opening cuts element", "opening / niche outside the element", "gap in the opening" and much more. Not just an element but the building model as a whole is analysed. Thus, a costly production shutdown is avoided.

Use of Concremote Concrete-Monitoring for Production Optimization and Quality Assurance in Precast Plants
For a cost-effective and safe production process in the precast plant, the development of early age concrete strength and the right choice of concrete mixtures are decisive factors. Concremote is a digital real-time concrete monitoring system that helps precast concrete manufacturers accelerate curing times, optimize resource use and provides detailed documentation. The parts of the system, fields of applications and customer benefits will be presented.

Robotics in Construction - Automated Production of Carbon Concrete Semi-Finished Parts
New materials, such as carbon, have found their way into the construction industry and are bringing their high-performance properties to bear. Above all, the material savings and the long service life are major advantages. Thanks to the use of robot technology, the textile carbon reinforcement structures can be produced fully automatically in the concrete plant and incorporated into the components, such as walls. The entire process was modeled from research (to the scale of 1:1) and integrated into the production.

Fire Protection for Core-Insulated Walls
In the professional construction industry fire issues are always a "hot" topic. Have the products installed been tested for cases of fire - is there an approval for this? What has to be taken into account when constructing fire protection? Can the project be executed as planned, considering these points? Concrete is supposedly the ideal building material here, but a wall assembly is often not just concrete. Again and again questions arise on the fire behaviour of core-insulated concrete walls.

PRADAP - A System for the Manufacturer-Independent Exchange of Article Data
PRADAP is a new concept to enable synchronisation of article data across manufacturers without having to abandon existing fixture catalogs. PRADAP does not aim for a central database that supersedes everything else, but introduces a lightweight, easy-to-implement communication method that links existing article catalogs.

Increase of the Lateral Force Capability of Head Bolt Sleeve Anchors in Concrete Construction by up to 60%
Anchorage points in concrete usually experience tensile as well as transverse loads. For transverse loads, the edge distances play a special role. The aim of every planning is to initiate the highest possible forces via the anchoring point into the concrete. Thanks to its geometry, the novel transverse force anchor enables a very efficient utilization of the concrete with experimentally determined load increases by up to 60%.

Carbon Concrete in Facade Construction
Architectural façade construction is one of the most important areas of application for carbon concrete elements. In contrast to reinforcement steel, carbon reinforcement can’t corrode, so that the concrete cover and at least the thickness of the facade panels can be reduced to a minimum of 20 to 30 mm. Due to this benefit, lightweight and slim structures can be realised. The so-called carbon-concrete panels initiate a revolution in the possibilities of facade concrete constructions.
