Quality issues are one of the most important causes of construction waste. As a consequence project team members are dealing with production inefficiency, overproduction, miscommunication and repeated work.
Why do disruptions in the quality chain on a construction site happen?
- Lack of stakeholder involvement, commit and collaboration
- No established method for a quality management process or procedure
- Lack of communication from the field or office
- No access to real-time information
- Paper-based processes
Improving quality at the site serves everyone in construction supply chain. A highly efficient approach to achieving and proactively managing quality is through the digitization of paper-based processes, making them available at every stage of a project to improve collaboration and involvement within project stakeholders.
The top five benefits of improving quality by digitizing in the construction industry
- Improved productivity and reduced cost
- Decreased construction waste, contributing to a more sustainable working environment
- Project stakeholder involvement and commitment
- Improved collaboration and co-operation
- Reduced rework by doing things right the first time
No matter how complex the construction project is or what type of building is built – residential, commercial, or industrial – quality is everyone’s business.
