Construmatic4.0 holds a novel idea which integrates new advanced manufacturing systems research and development, based those ones on the cable robotics and 4.0 industry technologies, and its later integration on the construction industry.

CONSTRUMATIC4.0, holds a novel idea which integrates new advanced manufacturing systems research and development, based those ones on the cable robotics and industry 4.0 technologies, and its later integration on the construction industry. Although a large number of activities within the construction industry have been totally or partially automated, and as time has passed, more and more versatile and efficient machines have been introduced in the processes and work carried out. Facilitate the work of the workers, the construction sector still does not have that evolution in the totality of its operations. It is possible to observe how, in operations related to maintenance, movement and transfer of goods and loads, manufacturing, as well as in control, inspection and verification, the human factor remains a determining factor in all of them. Some of those tasks with no automatization so far are: - Dependence on the operator´s skill. - Quality control and finishing related to the work performed. - Activity monitoring. - Workplace hazards. - Existence of deviations. - Lack of control in real time. - Reduction of working time. - Reduction of resources consumption. Considering that, CONSTRUMATIC4.0 will solve totally or partially (some cases) those cited issues, improving by this way the capacity of the construction industry, by the development of: - Research, development and implementation of an intelligent production system based on robotics of cables and the benefits of technology 4.0, for later application to the construction industry. - Use of the portable robotic system and / or easy assembly, which allows the integration of different tools to perform different jobs, such as the production of parts by 3D printing, and can then be integrated into the work itself, or the movement of loads. - Application of technology 4.0 to the construction industry itself, through which it is monitored in real time, as well as a control of the activities carried out and possible corrective actions to be applied. - Reduce significantly time, costs and materials, improving efficiency and flexibility of the process. - Expert system for conducting feasibility analysis and subsequent decision making in obtaining parts / elements, using 3D printing. - Development of a system easily transportable and usable anywhere, practically compatible with all projects. - Increase the safety of the worker and of the work itself. Therefore, CONSTRUMATIC4.0 is a global concept that includes a cable robotic device (development and integtration) and in addition, a virtual reality system (VR). Also, current project includes their integration and later validation on site added to the logistics associated to the process development. By this way, current project will integrate on the construction industry new systems based on 4.0 Industry.
