INTRODUCTION TO QA/ QC (Civil Engg) Course




  • What is a construction project? – time (master schedule) – cost (huge budget) – quality (drawings & technical specifications – hse (safety) requirements.
  • Client – consultant –contractor relationship – 4 m’s of construction – quality manpower, quality machinery, quality materials & quality method statements.



• Definition of quality
• What is quality assurance – quality control?
• What is total quality management system?
