Remicon, an important material constituting the structure of a building, needs an efficient quality management system throughout the entire process from production to delivery, including production management, shipment-transport management, and delivery management, to ensure the required performance by the contractor. Nowadays Remicon factories becoming smart factories and automated form for systematic and accurate management throughout the entire process from production to delivery, including product management, manufacturing facility management, transportation management and quality management based on advanced IT technology and computerization. However, data generated from sensor technology, big data processing technology, and SCM system, which are currently applied to the Remicon factory, are managed through single server management system. A single server has a high possibility of forgery and loss of data, which makes it less reliable for quality management of Remicon. In this study, we propose a Remicon quality management system based on the hyper-ledger fabric, a private block chain. This is a system that can digitally generate information that needs to be verified by the quality manager to secure the quality of Remicon at each stage of ?mixing-transport-delivery' and share it to all nodes participating in the block chain network to guarantee data reliability. In addition, the Dapp (distributed application) of each node has different ledger access rights. So Remicon manufacturers belonging to different channels do not share sensitive information, but contractors and government can view the status of all Remicon quality management at the construction site.
