Extendable flat cage with RFID tag for semi-trailer in transporting precast concrete panels (IBS) / Natrah Munirah Rosli

Rosli, Natrah Munirah (2021) Extendable flat cage with RFID tag for semi-trailer in transporting precast concrete panels (IBS) / Natrah Munirah Rosli. [Student Project]


Transportation in delivering Industrialized Building System (IBS) components from the manufacturing plant to the final project site need a proper carrier especially for precast products as nowadays it very popular in constructing high-rise residential buildings. This stage can influence the efficiency of the whole construction process. The study’s aim is to provide a new innovation idea for a transportation logistics system in the construction industry, specifically for IBS products which is precast concrete panels. This study is carried out through literature review research from various articles to analyze transportation issues in delivering precast concrete panels around the world. From the review, it is found that the issues involve the limitations in carrying different types of precast panels such as precast wall and slabs resulting in more than one different trailer needed. Besides that, lack on the security of the precast products during transportation and stability of the existing cage could cause an accident and delay in receiving the components. By identifying all the issues, it provides the opportunity and platform to propose the innovation idea. As an outcome, an innovation proposal is presented to address the highlighted issues while also promoting a sustainable product in achieving SDG and additional technologies is added in parallel to achieve IR4.0. The innovative cage is called Extendable Flat Cage with RFID tag. Furthermore, a simulation is created using SketchUp software to help with the idea's development and visualization in assembling and performances of the product. The marketability of the innovative cage is evaluated by distributing an online questionnaire to the precast manufacturers, contractors, and other players in construction industry. As the outcome, the innovative cage is beneficial to the potential users and has a potential to be marketed.
