plans. It is the responsibility of construction quality control to monitor process capability
and to ensure that process capability and performance is according to applicable control
plans. In case of nonconformity of processes, defined reaction plans are followed.
Important events that are occurring during construction, such as down times are
recorded. If identified characteristics on the control plan become unstable or non-
capable, the applicable reaction plan is followed. If appropriate, these reaction plans
include containment of produced parts or products and 100% inspection. Corrective
action is taken as per established procedure in order to restore required process
capability and product quality. If required, these corrective action plans are reviewed with
and approved by the customer. Effective dates of process changes are documented by

analyzed by the Management Representative regarding the effectiveness, suitability and
opportunities for improvement of the processes of the Quality Management System, and
by Department Heads regarding the performance and suitability of activities and
processes under their responsibility. This includes the analysis of DPL/SATORP
A summary report is issued by the Management Representative, providing information
on DPL/SATORP satisfaction or dissatisfaction, product quality, characteristics and
trends of processes and products including opportunities for preventive action, and
supplier performance.

Project Quality Plan -FACILITIES (PACKAGE-9) Manarah Al Jubail Const. Co.
The Management Representative controls and coordinates the implementation of
required corrective or preventive actions. Analysis results of statistics and actions are
reported by the Project Manager to the Management Representative who monitors the
progress and results of these actions.
