    Quality Management System for Ready Mixed Concrete Companies

    Member Price: $ 85.00
    Non-Member Price: $ 85.00

    This publication was developed with the support of the RMC Research & Education Foundation in support of the NRMCA's P2P Initiative. It provides preparation guidelines for ready mixed concrete producers in developing a comprehensive Quality Manual. Several appendices support the document. A sample Quality Manual of a fictitious company - Global Ready Mixed Company - serves as an illustration of a Quality Manual based on the preparation guidelines. An external audit checklist is proposed that includes only those items of the Quality Manual that are of interest to a purchaser of concrete. The document, in 3 parts, is available in a binder for easy reference and is a useful resource to companies developing their quality manuals. 260 pgs. 2008
