Glossary of Transportation Construction Quality Assurance Terms

Transportation construction quality assurance (QA), like many other specialized subject areas, has its own unique language containing numerous technical terms or expressions having very specific meanings. Some of these terms are not well understood, and their use is subject to a variety of different interpretations. The transportation construction QA language, moreover, is continually changing to keep pace with advances in QA. As new terms come into general use, older terms must often be perceived in a new light. The terminology has grown and evolved steadily since the mid-1960s, when much of it was first introduced to the transportation community; however, its growth and evolution have been to a large degree uncontrolled.This publication is a reference document for usage of transportation construction QA terminology. This publication is divided into four parts: an index, a glossary of transportation construction QA terms, a list of abbreviations and symbols, and a list of references.It is hoped that this publication will foster improved communications among those who are involved in transportation construction QA.
