The constant development in the construction industry demands the continuous study of new constructive alternatives to allow the most efficient and effective use of the resources. The present work is aimed to elaborating graphical models for operation processes in manufacturing of the L-18 precast slab system. The activities of this construction system were observed and analyzed and grouped in individual processes, which were the basis to elaborate a simulation model. The activities registered for the creation of this model were solely based on the assembly operations. The characteristics of the observed project that used this system are described and taken into account for the simulation of the construction system.
