Construction operations are conditioned by a numerous of variables involved in the process as well as by the dynamics of the usable resources. Some of those variables include the lack of standardizationof activities, the resource availability, the workers training, the use of a given machine or tool and the weather circumstances. Combined, they generate a great variability substantially increasing the uncertainty in the project planning. This situation creates the need of studying new scenes and tools to improve the different processes there involved. This article presents a digital simulation applied to the preparation of mixtures, transport and fi nal concrete placement in a building project. From the model representing the actual system, different scenes were established (personnel reduction in the concrete preparation area, different systems of vertical transport and a change in the method for concrete dosage)in order to determine the most effi cient one in terms of time and cost reduction.
