Abstract : In all construction, including that of highways and airfields, the intent is to maximize proper performance, minimize improper performance, and do this at the lowest practicable cost. Statistical quality control methodology can maximize the obtaining of the level of performance that will result if the construction meets the specified requirements. It cannot, directly, maximize the obtaining of proper performance unless the levels of quality that will yield proper performance happen to be those which result from compliance with the requirements that were established.
