Two discrete-event simulations are developed to assess the feasibility of improving the delivery process of rein-forced concrete structures. The simulations represent the resource and information flows necessary for supporting set-based design of reinforcing bars used in concrete. Set-based design enables the exploration of feasible solutions for longer in the design process than is otherwise afford-able using point-based design, so as to allow for input from several project participants early on and at the same time. The simulations use the canonical example of se-lecting longitudinal reinforcement for a beam-column joint. The first simulation uses EZStrobe
