Quality Control and Quality Assurance

How do you specify and ensure a quality steel project? The answer is in Chapter N. Chapter N has been a part of the AISC Specification for Structural Steel Buildings (ANSI/AISC 360) since 2010. Why was this added to the AISC Specification? Are these new quality requirements for fabrication and erection? What is the difference between Quality Control (QC) and Quality Assurance (QA)? How does this relate to the International Building Code (IBC)? This session will try to address these burning questions that you may have. In addition, do statistics show how a quality program is functioning while increasing productivity? The answers may surprise you.

This presentation was given as the last of eight sessions of Night School 18:  Steel Construction:  From the Mill to Topping Out.  You can find other sessions from this Night School in the Education Archives at the following links.
