Construction Project Using TQM

The construction industry of any country is
the backbone of its infrastructure and economy.
Though it is a major contributor to the economy of
any country, it faces the problems of high
fragmentation, instability, low productivity, poor
quality and lack of standards. The desperate need for
infrastructure development has increased the demand
of the construction industry. In order to save the
buildings from the various natural and manmade
hazards, emphasis is being laid on the planning
,design of the buildings, reducing wastages in
construction, organizing man power. Due to the
above mentioned quality problems, construction
clients are not satisfied with the performance
achieved on many of their projects.
Better construction management is required for
optimizing resources and maximizing productivity
and efficiency.

The construction industry has lagged behind other industries in implementing reform through total quality
management. It has not followed the manufacturing industry in the implementation of TQM. The success
of the total quality management (TQM) philosophy in manufacturing and other industries is forcing construction organizations to adopt TQM. Thus the reputation of the construction industry is ill suited for meeting the competitive challenges of today’s fast changing market, where the competitive edge is with those who manage their resources most effectively and offer a timely response to the demands of the market.

In order to emphasize the role of quality various aspects of quality tools and techniques have been used in this project to eliminate the various waste generated in the construction site. By eliminating the waste, productivity and efficiency in the construction can be improved and a better
construction plan can be devised
