A quality-assurance program within the highway department involves, besides material sampling, testing and inspection, review, and update of these procedures based on performance of the finished product. Conceptually, it is a feedback system and emphasizes the interrelations among various disciplines within the highway department. Louisiana has expanded its quality-assurane program to provide such a feedback system to management, design, construction, and specification personnel. The system is computer-oriented and is capable of providing (a) assistance in monitoring construction projects for compliance with specifications, (b) a log of major construction materials and tests, and (c) a record of the pattern of variation due to contractor, materials, and equipment for subsequent statistical evaluation of quality control and specification review and update. /Author/
