Abstract:

An automated management support system is needed for quality assurance OA enforcement of real property maintenance activities RPMA contracts under the Army-wide Commercial Activities CA Program. A QA Scheduling and Inspection Management System QASIMS was developed to satisfy this need. The QASIMS Program can help Army Directorates of Public Works DPWs effectively use available QA resources. Personal computers POs, efficient software, future data collection requirements, and QA requirements for CA contract management justify eliminating the manual performance of repetitive and simple deductive QA functions. A full use of the DPW data base resource for planning, scheduling, and managing OA at Army installations has been a primary consideration in the development of OASIMS. The assistance provided by QASIMS to OA management control and to OA Evaluator OAE inspection scheduling will allow more time for on-site inspection work and the direct monitoring of CA contracts. This users manual describes the functional and performance requirements of QASIMS and provides the necessary guidance to the application of this program in a modern DPW environment.
