More about the enhanced CQC quality program:

Today, most large Customers want more than assurances and a handshake. They're asking Contractors to provide them with a copy of their quality system or at least a comprehensive quality plan. Larger Customers want their Supplier's to operate a nonconformance program that includes corrective action and have procedures for purchasing and receiving as well as in-process work and inspection instructions with records of the results and escapes. Most large Customers want records stored and maintained as part of a change control and document management system. So many Customers are now asking for production and shipping procedures as well as an outstanding training program.

Browse the demo documents in the enhanced CQC quality program.

Sometimes, Customers want even more "quality" but many have decided to add only a few key procedures to their flowdown requirements to avoid reducing their pool of resources. Customers will continue to add a "little-at-a-time" to quality requirements to continuously improve their Supplier base and we'll keep up to support businesses that need just enough "quality" at-a-time. We're hopeful your Customer requirements don't impose any more quality than the Starter or Comprehensive CQC plan.

Application Notes:

The above manual/program is for businesses that need a "quality manual" but not a "construction quality control system". The manual/program establishes Company policies and addresses project controls for nonconformances, responsible authorities, inspection steps, testing, document and record controls, workmanship and more...

A "quality manual" briefly describes Company policies and objectives without describing the quality system or supporting procedures that explain "how" things are done. A "quality system" is an organizational structure with procedures, processes and resources needed to implement quality management.

What does your Customer mean when they ask for a construction quality control system or program? We understand it is difficult for you to know what your Customer means without asking for their definition of "quality plan". Here's a couple of definitions to consider:

Definition #1: Quality Manual
Brief overview of quality policies and objectives with a list of key personnel and details for controlling requirements of the construction project. Tailor the manual/program for each project by recording the contract number AND project name on the cover page then describe work details in Chapter 10 - repeat for every project.

Definition #2: Quality System
Comprehensive description of the QMS within the quality manual. The manual does not need to be tailored for each project/Customer because it applies to all projects.

If you need a quality manual/program according to Definition #1 then please browse the demo documents in the above Starter Kit. If you need a construction project quality management system according to definition #2 or if you need more than a quality manual/program then please browse our website.

General Contractors and other Construction businesses can use the construction quality program as a project plan or manual where each project is issued a dedicated copy that is tailored to describe contract-specific work details. The manual/program or plan is useful for businesses that don't want or need a "quality system".

Typical Customer question:

Do you have a quality program - plan - manual?

If you're fortunate, your Customer means the kind of manual/program described here. If you know your Customer wants a "construction quality control system", browse this page to find an appropriate quality management system ( QMS ) for your Customer. Call to brainstorm with us about your project - 719-649-4242.

Typical Manager questions and thoughts after a Customer requests a quality manual:

They're asking for a quality manual? Does that mean "quality system" or "quality manual"? We've never needed more than our boilerplate proposal to bid on a job! How do we do this without adding "system" to our business operation?

Solution: The CQC Quality manual/program/plan.

Simple, low cost plan that can be used as a template for every project. The CQC construction quality control system helps to delay implementation of a burdensome QMS. The plan is a multiple application document for use as a manual, program and/or plan that applies to traditional business operations where a certified quality system is not mandatory.

Program Plan: Considerations

In evaluating the construction quality control system, consideration should be given to Customer emphasis areas and the observations and findings of similar past programs. This evaluation should be incorporated in the risk assessment procedures. As appropriate, the risk assessment should provide for evaluating various phases of the program on a regular basis and document the reasons for not making detailed reviews.

Program areas where no major problems exist may not require detailed review. Program areas having major problems and those where insufficient information is available for drawing conclusions are candidates to be included in the review process.

A fundamental component of construction quality control system management is an understanding of contract administration and construction quality. Contract administration is broadly defined as taking a project specification and producing a desired end product. Construction quality management involves traditional quality assurance measures employed to control and verify construction, material and product quality. It also encompasses broader topics of continuous quality improvement such as optimization of decision-making processes, innovative contracting practices for enhancing quality, performance feedback mechanisms, specification improvements and design refinements.

Quality construction is critical to a successful project. Completed construction programs represent tangible products that ultimately define the success of construction projects based on the level of delivered quality, which may include a variety of issues such as safety characteristics, operational efficiency during and after construction, materials quality and long-term durability, and financial value. The proper use and knowledge of effective construction quality management applications at the program and project level can provide the Customer with confidence that completed construction work meets the objectives for success.

Many construction projects are also using other quality improvement methods, such as obtaining and using Customer and User feedback, developing performance measures and goals and using various processes during construction to ensure quality workmanship. All of these quality improvement techniques fall within the broader context of management.

Quality assurance (QA) is the systematic process necessary to ensure the quality of a product. Quality assurance is an all-encompassing term that includes quality control, acceptance, independent assurance, dispute resolution and the use of qualified laboratories and personnel.

Plan Development

Generally, discussion of the who, what, where, when and how should comprise three to six pages with an additional two to four pages of detailed information for each major category of work. This does not include supplemental materials such as Subcontractor and Supplier plans, certifications, test data, and personnel resumes. Also, the QC plan should not contain repetitions of contract specifications and meaningless platitudes from quality textbooks.

No matter how much detail is in the plan, it can always be argued that more could be or should be included.

Quality Control Plan Overview

The following construction quality control system contents are intended to serve as a generic tool to assist in preparing complete and useful QC plans. Each section addresses a major QC Plan item, for instance:

QC Plans for other projects can be developed following the above format.

The level of detailed information in any construction quality control system will obviously change depending upon the size and complexity of the individual construction project. The above content is designed as a template and guide.

Note: Every QC plan should include examples of forms and reports that the Company will use to document and report the results of QC monitoring, which can appear as appendices in the QC plan. The forms and reports may differ from plan to plan depending on the type of project - for example:

Each QC plan should include samples of forms and reports that are appropriate to the project type.

Hope this information helps your project.
