Abstract: Four case studies discuss the issue of responsibility for quality assurance and quality control by describing actual situations where quality work is being done in the field. The case studies include: (1) An evaluation of a quality management program used by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers; (2) the role of the quality assurance manager on a large commercial project; (3) the construction management organization of the Dallas North Tollway Extension project; and (4) a management training program designed to enhance attitudes about quality in individual members of an organization. A commentary on quality in the constructed project is also given.
