How can you easily improve construction quality (and manage defects)?
The need for improved quality is synonymous with the need for improved productivity. Through high quality outcomes, value can be added and productivity gains made.
For years, improving construction, assembly or installation quality through defect management (deficiency management or snagging) has been one of the most difficult tasks of the construction management process.
In the past defects (deficiencies or snags) had to be located individually on printed sheets, drawings (or plans) with handwritten notes. At the end of each day, information was entered on a computer and then passed to the right team members or subcontractors. This time-consuming operation had many risks (notes are unreadable, drawings (sheets, plans) become lost etc…) and negatively affects overall quality of finished results as a manual process is prone to inaccuracy, omissions and errors.
Are you still performing defect management for inspection, maintenance or commissioning operations manually – the old way – today?
