What is it about?
The construction industry has great prominence for the world economy, and it is expected that with the use of the innovative technologies and approaches of Industry 4.0, the new industrial paradigm, construction can reach superior levels of productivity, but its implementation is a critical process. This study develops a model to assess the level of use of Industry 4.0 technologies (readiness model) and its most relevant applications by companies in the construction sector.
