||Quality inspection and defect management in industrial building construction is one of the major factors that general contractors have to consider for improving customer satisfaction and gain competitive advantage. This paper describes a web-based system for quality inspection and defect management (SIDEM). The system is derived from the elements of ISO 9001 standard, and assist management in tracking of inspection/test results, defects management, non-conformities analysis, preventive and corrective measures, etc. A Quality Inspection database and a relational database structure were devised to effectively interconnect the essential information such as facility, trades, trade contractors, materials, and defect types required for a computerized quality inspection and defect management for industrial building construction. In SIDEM, all collected and analyzed information is stored into the database of the central server system allowing general contractors to effectively monitor and statistically analyze the statuses and results of the quality inspection and defect management in real time.
