Abstract—Nowadays the demand for concrete with high quality is permanent. The claim to build aesthetic reinforced concrete structures is increasing. In the last decade the development of the new concreting procedures became faster, therefore the concrete was further developed to be economical and multi-faceted. The self-compacting concrete has widespread use in the prefabricated concrete industry. Pretensioned prestressed concrete specimens are finished in the factories, where the high early strength is the most important requirement. The production became profitable and quicker with this new technology. Hence it follows that, the optimization of the production scheduling is very important.
