Quality Assurance - Quality Control

Quality  Assurance / Quality Control (QA/QC)

Quality assurance (QA) refers to the planned and systematic activities implemented in a quality system so that quality requirements for construction activities will be fulfilled. It is the systematic measurement, comparison with a standard, monitoring of processes and an associated feedback loop that confers error prevention.  This can be contrasted with Quality "Control" which is focused on process outputs.

Two principles included in QA are:

  1. Fit for purpose, whereupon the work should be suitable for the intended purpose; and
  2. Right first time, where mistakes should be eliminated

QA includes management of the quality of raw materials, assemblies, products and components, services related to production, and management, production and inspection processes.

Quality control (QC) is a process where the quality of all factors involved in design and construction are reviewed. This approach places an emphasis on three principles:

  1. Well Defined and Managed Processes, including performance and integrity criteria, record keeping and process controls
  2. Competence, including technical knowledge, skills, experience, and qualifications
  3. Leadership elements, such as personnel integrity, confidence, organizational culture, motivation, team spirit and team relationships

Controls include work inspection, where every construction element is examined visually and  microscopically before the task is completed. Inspectors will be provided with lists and descriptions of unacceptable work defects such as poor welds, cracks or surface blemishes.  The quality of the outputs is at risk if any of these three aspects is deficient in any way.

Quality control emphasizes testing of work elements to uncover defects and reporting to management who make the decision to allow or deny work completion, whereas quality assurance attempts to improve and stabilize work (and associated processes) to avoid issues which led to defect(s) in the first place.  For contract work, particularly work awarded by government agencies, quality control issues are among the top reasons for not renewing a contract.

Our QA/QC Services include:

  • Quality Assessments
  • Quality Audits
  • Quality checklists
  • Defect Tracking
  • Root Cause Analysis
