This work describes the procedures used in the manufacture and assembly of prestressed concrete hollow core slab systems, along with recommendations for presentation and implementation of projects in order to optimize the use of such elements and also its functionality, trying to keep the same quality and durability. So, it is briefly shown that the theory applied to the development of calculations and verifications in the ultimate and service states, considering the bending behavior of the panels, the shear and the excessive deformation, and prestress losses that are of great importance for the final results. Therefore, it creates a scheme to solve two numerical examples which come from a cross-section preestablished on the basis of tables published that are related to overload and long spans which the slab can achieve. Then compare the results obtained in the examples with the values that the tables showed and then do relevant comments. Finally, the conclusions are provided and comments for improvements in the sector of design and production of hollow core slabs, followed by suggestions for future work.
