MARCH SECTION MEETING
QUALITY PROGRAMS FOR ENGINEERS
A Full Day Symposium
Tuesday, March 11th, 2014
Large firms typically have a formal quality department with
dedicated staff and well developed procedures. The small firm
will have no formal quality department nor dedicated staff. The
quality program objectives and fundamental practices are the
same. The differences will include who is involved; how the
programs are implemented and the extent of sophistication.
