Assignment: Project Management
Prepare a quality management plan using the elements described.
Content: Over the course the semester you've become familiar with the project and as part of the overall project management plan, a quality management plan is needed to communicate how quality will be met to the satisfaction of each stakeholder involved in a typical residential construction project.
You should perform research on quality standards associated with residential construction to determine applicable standards. At least four quality objectives associated with the project should be defined.
As part of the section on quality tools, include a separate appendix with at least three quality tools that will be used as a part of the project. These can be drawn from: 1) flow charts, 2) check sheets, 3) Pareto diagrams, 4) histograms, 5) control charts, 6) scatter diagrams, 7) affinity diagrams, 8) process decision programs charts, 9) interrelationship digraphs, 10) tree diagrams, 11) prioritization matrices, 12) activity network diagrams, 13) matrix diagrams, 14) inspections, and 15) statistical sampling.
Last, about 1/3 of the plan should be devoted to major procedures relevant for the project for dealing with non-conformance, corrective actions procedures, and continuous improvement procedures.
If information needed to complete a QMP is not explicitly stated in the scenario description or other project artifacts you've created or collected for this scenario in the past units, then develop (make-up) the information you need to complete the plan. Use tables and illustrations as needed to convey information.
The plan (excluding the separate appendix) should be approximately 4 to 5 pages.
Your Instructor will use Turn-it-in to ensure your paper is authentic work. To avoid plagiarism, see the course home page for more information and use the Purdue Online Writing Lab to learn how to paraphrase, summarize and cite the references you use in all academic writing assignments.
Mechanics: It is expected that each part of this assignment have excellent mechanics (presentation, grammar and spelling) and exhibit the quality of work capable of a group of graduate students and working professionals. All sections of the document submitted must be readable at 100% magnification. Include any resources used in an APA formatted reference section.
Format your assignment according to the following formatting requirements:
1. The answer should be typed, double spaced, using Times New Roman font (size 12), with one-inch margins on all sides.
