Part of managing a large Civil Construction project is delivering the Quality Assurance to ensure the project is completed within the agreed specifications and standards, and all the deliverables are completed on time without any major issues or cost blowouts. This can sometimes be time-consuming and costly given that so much work and effort are required to cover a single construction project involving so many facets ranging from monitoring the progress of work completed, mapping out the geometry, communicating with the number of stakeholders involved, controlling the costs of an extensive list of schedule items, managing the risks …. and the list goes on.
One key concept that CivilPro uses to resolve the complexity of managing a civil construction project and by extension streamlining its Quality Assurance process is to divide a single project into many parcels of work called Lots that can be managed and monitored much more easily and seamlessly. This is called Lot-Based Quality Assurance.
CivilPro is designed to fit in with this flexible and structured approach of Lot-based quality assurance and can be customized to be as simple or comprehensive as appropriate, according to your project’s requirements. Within CivilPro, there are registers and tools designed to link each Lot to its related items such as checklists, quantities completed, test requests, etc. In doing so, all of the testing, inspection, conformance checks and valuation of work completed is referenced back to the Lot which contains the work in question. The records associated with each Lot are compiled and managed as a separable record of completed work.
Building on this key concept, CivilPro is able to produce quantifiable results and key reports for each and every Lot that can be compiled to deliver a completed project in its entirety.
