What is a Non-Conformance Report?
A Non Conformance Report is used to report on a set of work which is not up to the agreed upon standards. One of the implications of a Non-Conformance Report is that they can, under some Specifications, prevent payment for work. Civil Pro assists in monitoring the impact of Non-Conformance Reports in this environment by calculating their cost impact. This allows prioritisation of Non-Conformance Report closeouts and quantification of the metric for reporting purposes. A Non-Conformance Report's value is calculated based on the value of Lots linked to the NCR. This can be viewed using the predefined Non-Conformance Report Value View of the Register.
What is the Purpose of the Non-Conformance Register?
Regardless of how good your quality assurance is, something will inevitably go wrong. A concrete truck gets held up in traffic and is 5 minutes longer than the allowable batch to pour duration; a shower of rain affects the surface of a new concrete pour; or a gravel lot falls slightly out of grading spec. This is when a good non-conformance system comes in to play.
Contrary to the old-school perception that a Non-Conformance is a bad thing, they are actually a sign of a quality assurance system that is working correctly. A reliable Non-Conformance system gives clients confidence that any issues on site are being identified and resolved in a manner where the final quality of the project is not compromised.
Civil Pro’s Non-Conformance Report Register tracks issues with process or product, recording key details about the problems and tracking their resolution. Our Non-Conformance Report Register is used to:
- Define the issue
- Specify corrective action
- Propose action to prevent re-occurrence of the issue
- Record the approval of the Non-Conformance Report by the client (or other party)
- Track the closeout of the issue – once approval for a course of action is gained, is that course of action completed?
- Allocate properties for Non-Conformance management such as the Action Type (Retest; Repair/Rectify; Replace/Reconstruct; Use As Is etc.), severity, related properties and root cause
