SCS Engineers Quality Assurance Program:
SCS has proactively implemented a
formal corporate Quality Control (QC) Program. The primary means of building
quality into every phase of each project is through the SCS policy, which is to
conduct its work on behalf of its customers in accordance with specified
standards and procedures that ensure the highest quality of performance on
every job. This QC approach is to adopt and implement procedures
that assure control and accountability of project data and information and
document these procedures to both the degree specified by customers and
warranted by the nature of the work conducted.
The objectives of the QC Program are to ensure that:
The required standards of quality are met.
A system of surveillance of the project
team’s performance is provided and that the contract provisions are enforced.
Systems and components fabricated and
tested in manufacturer’s facilities conform to the specifications, drawings,
procedures, and instructions, if required.
Structures, systems, and components
constructed and tested at the site conform to the specifications, drawings,
procedures, and instructions.
The completed work product will perform satisfactorily in terms of
reliability, safety, durability, function, and appearance.
Adequate documentation is provided to regulating agencies to
reflect compliance with codes, permits, and licensing requirements.
Quality Control is typically a form of inspection that
assesses work-product towards the end of the production process to ensure that
it meets specs. If the work-product fails QC, then it is discarded or reworked,
often at a significant rework cost. On the other hand, Quality Assurance (QA)
incorporates steps throughout the entire production process to significantly
increase the likelihood that the work-product will pass QC. In both its
technical and business consulting processes, the SCS Team emphasizes QA. For
example, greater emphasis is placed on solid upfront requirements gathering so
that the solution being developed actually solves the right problem. Agile
methodologies are leveraged that deliver work-product early and often over the
course of a long project. By delivering work-product early and often, the client
has ample opportunity to examine and use it and to provide valuable feedback
before significant additional investment is made. The QC dimension of the SCS
Team’s processes typically involves User Acceptance Testing (UAT), where the
end-users or their advocates actually use the work-product for some time to
ensure that it is bug-free and meets the requirements.
