Quality Assurance and the Engineer's Responsibility

Improving quality is the most urgent and difficult task facing all members of the building industry. ‘Quality’ is, however, now being perceived as an entity of its own capable of being rationalised into a universal system grandly named ‘quality assurance’. If the implications of such systematisation on the engineer’s responsibilities are not properly understood, all efforts to improve quality could be negated. B.H. Fisher
