Summary:
"TRB's National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP) Report 808: Guidebook on Alternative Quality Management Systems for Highway Construction provides national guidance on standard approaches relating to quality management systems (QMSs). The basis for the report stems from a lack of guidance that resulted in significant investment on the part of transportation agencies, contractors, and consultants to develop unique QMSs for different agencies on a project-by-project basis. The speed at which rapid renewal projects must be delivered creates a demand for a well-defined QMS that can be successfully replicated on a variety of projects. The report will guide readers through the process of developing a QMS that is both responsive to specific project needs and broad enough to be replicated with project-specific adaptations on future projects of similar scope, complexity, and delivery schedule. The project quality assurance organization (QAO) selection forms presented in the report are available online." -- Publisher's description.
