This paper is dedicated to simulation idea of construction process for decision-making aid. An aim is to improve technological decisions for concreting operation at low temperature. A risk of destruction of concrete structure is a critical problem in this situation. A sudden drop in temperature may result in disqualification of the concrete element or the entire structure. The proposed solution is based on a simulation of the process of maturing of the concrete element based on experiments in the laboratory (e.g. heat of hydration and dynamics of growth of compressive strength depending on the temperature). The case study proved that the traditional approach to the management of concreting technology (based on one 48-hour forecast) is extremely risky when operating in a turbulent and changing environment. The proposed flexible approach is based on systematically updated simulation and is more effective thanks to the possibility of activating active flexible procedures to prevent freezing of concrete in case of pessimistic scenario.
