The paper develops a method of 5G network planning to automate the production processes of the enterprise, which consists in sequentially ensuring the design of the radio network coverage to determine the location of each base station using an optimized model to estimate the power loss of the radio signal. reliability and construction of the communication transport segment with the determination of the optimal location of cross-country premises. The object of research is the process of building a cloud information and communication system for automation of production processes. The subject of the research is the methods of radio coverage planning and modeling of the propagation of radio signals of 5G mobile networks for automation of production processes. The aim is to plan a 5G cellular network with an improved enterprise network architecture to further optimize production processes. The developed method makes it possible to plan the optimal structure of the 5G cellular network to optimize production processes, evaluate and reduce the total cost of building the network, while providing the necessary indicators of service quality of network nodes and its reliability.
