Quality management has received much attention in recent years, not least of all in the construction industry. The debate centres on whether techniques of quality management developed in other industries, such as manufacturing, can be successfully applied in construction.
Quality Improvement Techniques in Construction provides a description of the techniques of quality management and how they are implemented, regardless of the context. It then illustrates how these techniques are being implemented in the construction industry. It gives real-life examples of quality improvement methods used in practice by a number of quality managers in large contracting organisations. The author shows that techniques developed elsewhere are just as applicable to the construction industry as any other industry.
Topics covered include: what is meant by quality management?; the historical development of quality management; the gurus of quality management; the use of quality assurance; how to use QA: the importance of quality managers; the transition from QA to TQM - achieving a change in culture; the importance of people in improvement initiatives; the issue of leadership in total quality management; using quality improvement techniques; an overview of other methods of achieving improvement; looking to the future: is there life after TQM?; practical applications of quality management using QA in the construction industry; and the journey to TQM - contractors' experiences.
Quality Improvement Techniques in Construction is a core textbook for level 2 and parts of level 3 of The CIOB's Education Framework. It is also suitable for HNC/D building and civil engineering studies as well as undergraduate degree courses in building, construction management, quantity and building surveying, and architecture.
