Engineering Project Management: The IPQMS Method and Case Histories
Engineering Project Management presents IPQMS (Integrated Planning and Quality Management System) as a powerful management methodology. This system ensures accountability, cost-effectiveness, and quality in the construction project, environmental cleanups, and other sectors - providing an integrative force for essential teamwork in industry and government.
This resource contains IPQMS case histories or postmortems as distinguished from engineering and business case studies. Each case history analyzes the entire spectrum of a particular project, demonstrating the interrelationships among policy makers, planners, designers, implementers, and managers in creating a project. Lessons learned from over 35 cases in nine countries clearly show the need to establish accountability for quality execution of programs, projects, and policies. An outline for a two-week training program on the IPQMS for planners, designers, and managers is included.
