Assignment

You have been selected as a project manager for a prestigious high rise building in
Mumbai which will be housing very rich personalities from industry and film
world.
Your company management has asked you to formalize Quality Management
System (QMS) for interior finishes, plumbing and prevention of rain water
seepage so that the overall quality standard and image of company is raised.
Purpose
The purpose of this document i.e. Quality Assurance Plan is to establish work
methodology for Quality Control and Material engineering for Construction of
High Rise Building in Mumbai for very rich personalities from industry and film
world.
The procedure will outline the methods that will be used in line with the National
Building Codes, Local building codes Specifications for Building works and the
Technical Specifications as per the requirements of the Engineer or his
representatives.

The methodology also defines the standards of workmanship and requirements for
materials necessary for the work.
Scope
This procedure is applicable to all engineers, workmen, supervisors, inspectors and
quality control personnel engaged in the works for the Construction of High rise
residential apartments in Mumbai. It intends to correlate and control the tasks
pertaining to Quality Control and Materials testing in compliance with the
requirements. patience

Quality management System
Quality management system refers to all plans, processes and activities that are
developed to achieve the intended degree of conformance in the design and
execution of any project. The QMS concept focuses attention of the following
specific aspects of construction processes.
1. Construction is a one time activity. It affords no second chance of
modification, repair or rejection once the construction work is completed.
There is no scope for catching the defects after the construction is over.
Therefore

quality consciousness, skill and workers are essential in

achieving quality. Training, motivation

and commitment are the

primary requirement of quality construction.
2. With the increase in complexity and the size of construction operations, the
responsibility for ensuring quality has gradually shifted from the worker to
supervisor of inspection and later to the quality control department. This

3. trend has to be reversed if quality is the goal. Responsibility to ensure
quality has to be shifted back to the worker at site and his supervisor.
4. It is a well known fact that the quality cannot be constructed. It has to be
designed into a project system. QMS therefore starts from the design stage
itself. Quality of design is the difference between various design of the
project for achieving the same end use and the most optimal design finally
selected. Thus economy, quality and safety are very closely interlinked in
construction process.
5. Quality is expensive. Quality decisions are based on trade-offs between cost
of construction and the benefits derived from the operations of facility. Once
the decision is taken, it has to be backed by appropriate staff strength,
infrastructure and support services. The management must therefore be
committed to quality, participate in all measures developed to achieve it and
lend support to QMS personnel.
6. QMS is the responsibility of the project authority. The owner or his
representative formulates the policy, determines the scope of quality
planning and management establishes the relationship between the various
participating organizations and delegates responsibility and authority to
them so that the quality objectives set by the owner are achieved.

Quality Control:
Quality control refers to the technical processes that gather, examine, analyse and
report

the

projects

progress and conformance with the performance

requirements. QC mainly relates to four basic functions:
Page 3 of 55

Assignment no. 2
Construction quality management
Registration no.

1. Setting up of standards and specifications.
2. Evaluating materials, processes and outputs through appropriate tests,
inspection etc.
3. Appraising failures to these standards and acting when standards are not
being adhered to.
4. Planning improvements in the standards and specifications.

Quality Control norms, techniques and procedures:
Inspection:
Once quality standards and other things are laid out inspection becomes a routine
matter. In any quality control programme actual inspection and measurement is an
undetachable factor, which is to be planned at properly to meet with the overall
objective

of

the quality control. Various stages of inspection should be

determined . Some of such stages could be following.
i.

Material inspection at suppliers end.

ii.

Material inspection at the stage of receipt.

iii.

Material inspection at the stage of issue.

iv.

Inspection of the process at the time of initial setting of
machine/equipment.

v.

Inspection of trial run batch.

vi.

Inspection while the execution is in progress.

vii.

Inspection of the finished process.

viii. Inspection before erection and commissioning.
ix.

Inspection of commissioning.

Inspection of machines and equipment commissioned.

Having decided various stages of inspection and various quality characteristics to
be inspected it is also important to decide who will inspect, when the inspection
will be carried out, how many units will be inspected, instruments to be used
required approval for acceptance.
While planning such inspection activities it is also important to decide what
information is to be given to the inspector at the time of inspection. Some of the
basic information required is design specifications, product specification, quality
characteristics, quality standards and tolerances available and the detailed
inspection procedures.
For total quality control the following six phases are necessary (6Cs)
i.

Comprehension

-

What is quality. It should be definable and

measureable.
ii.

Commitment

- Clarity of concept and policies organizations for it.

iii.

Competence

- Develop methods test procedures to evaluate quality
understand the price conformance to quality.

iv.

Communication -

Create awareness, resolve conflicts, coordinate

activities,
v.

Correction

- Solve problems for non conformance. They may be

due
to lack of attention rather than lack of knowledge or
lack of facilities.
vi.

Continuance

- Maintain its importance and do not complacent ensure

What to test: The manufactured goods such as cement and steel carry their suppliers warrantee but this does not mean that they are not to be tested. prescribed procedures of testing. Some intermediate process may not be having tests and they cannot be tested and the inadequacies if any can known only when the final product is tested. Statistical Quality Control: Total quality management addresses organizational quality from managerial and philosophical viewpoint. We need specific tools that helps us make the right quality decision. Page 7 of 55 . In such situation the testing of final product is important. However. TQM focuses on customer driven quality standards. continuous improvement. 2 Construction quality management Registration no. results are compared with the prescribed standards and specifications and judgements are arrived at. These tools comes from the area of statistics and are used to help identify quality problems in the production process as well as in product itself. Proper methods of sampling. The processing need to be tested and supervised carefully. well qualified and trained personnel for testing work and properly equipped laboratories are necessary.Assignment no.

Statistical Process Control: Involves inspecting a random sample of the output from a process and deciding whether the process is producing products with characteristics that fall within a predetermined range. Acceptance Sampling: Is the process of randomly inspecting a sample of goods and deciding whether to accept the entire lot based on the results. the range and a measure of distribution of data. appropriate Page 8 of 55 .
