Quality Initiatives

 

 

 

NRMCA offers multiple resources for concrete producers to improve quality...

Cost of Poor Quality

 

Cost of Poor Quality (COPQ) is the total cost to the company as a result of internal and external failures or deficiencies of ready mixed concrete. COPQ is used as a tool for focusing attention on the quality management system (QMS) in place at the company. By investing and implementing better quality practices, a company can reduce its COPQ and increase profitability. Establishing the company’s reputation as a higher quality supplier can also help increase revenues. Measurement of COPQ will help track and document improvement in quality on an annual basis.

Improving Quality of Acceptance Testing


NRMCA has developed a checklist and power point presentation “Code and Standards Requirements for Acceptance Testing”. The presentation is provided with notes. This presentation can be used as part of local seminars to help ensure that the acceptance testing conforms to industry codes and standards.
