At present, road conditions in Russia hinder national economic development. The number of roads at present is insufficient, their quality being unsatisfactory. The creation of a methodological basis for the development of modern hierarchical systems to manage road concrete mix production will contribute to solving not only the tasks of the direct technological process control. It will also help to resolve more complex tasks such as operational management of product quality. The work is based on complex use of methods of automatic control theory, Theory of Probability and Mathematical Statistics, methods of optimal systems, and mathematical modeling. MatLab mathematical package should be used as a more efficient way to make a system analysis and to model production processes. The expected results are modeling the interaction of subsystems of the Automatic Control System (ACS). ACS of cementing materials, as well as ACS of sand and gravel hoppers, will allow estimating the complexity of the interaction of the ACS subsystems.  The result of the research is the possible use of the proposed concept and methodological approach to the research and development of optimal ACS structures for the construction industry. The implementation of the research results will allow to make an appropriate assessment of the effectiveness of the solutions proposed for the modernization of ACS coating plants, as well as to assess the range of the tasks they have to solve, and the structure of the proposed ACS of coating plants.
