STATISTICAL QUALITY CONTROL PROCEDURES FOR AIRPORT PAVEMENT MATERIALS
Present pavement quality control procedures are inadequate because conventional control test results cannot predict the degree of compliance with specification requirements of materials being evaluated. More accuracy in prediction is possible when statistical quality control (SQC) procedures are applied. SQC should eliminate biased results. Conventional methods of control may cause material that is accepted on one job to be rejected on another job due solely to the differences in opinion of the engineers in charge. SQC will standardize the specification requirements from one job to another by better describing the procedures for evaluating pavement materials and construction.
