PROBLEM STATEMENT The main theme of this research is to identify the problems for the construction companies to implement quality management process according to the standard and the impact it has on the construction project. The precise implementation of any standard in construction is very hard to achieve but attempt needs to be made for closest call. This research is focused on investigation of how quality management is being practiced. This spring the process charted by the construction companies and the comparative study of this process, with standard, provides the difference in the work methodology, for further analysis. The study is based on different aspects of the process being carried out; first being the early work on quality management plan and second being the
Whereas maintenance departments are the traditional centre of preventive maintenance programs, TPM seeks to involve workers from all departments and levels, including the plant-floor to senior executives, to ensure effective equipment operation. Manufacturing organizations have used different approaches to improve maintenance effectiveness (Roup, 1999). One approach to improving the performance of maintenance activities is to implement and develop a TPM strategy. The TPM implementation methodology provides organizations with a guide to fundamentally transform their shop floor by integrating culture, process, and technology (Moore,
Measure of project management maturity enables organizations to identify on how to improve project performance (Brookes et al., 2014). The benefits derived from project management is directly proportional and increases with best implementation of project management processes at all levels of an organization. A successful project will be completed on time and within the budget and it will deliver desired quality product. It will provide great satisfaction to its team, and it will meet (or exceed) the customers’ expectations (Holmes & Walsh, 2005) and will be the stepping stone for organizations growth. Accordingly, this subject has a great value in today’s culture and organization
Often maintenance activities (including preventive maintenance (PM) and corrective maintenance (CM)) are outsourced to an OEM (original equipment manufacturer) or an external agent. OEM or an agent can do a partial or full coverage of the maintenance actions (Preventive Maintenance (PM) or/and Corrective maintenance (CM)). Preventive maintenance (PM) actions are done to prevent the excessive degradation (whether it is an age based or condition based maintenance), while corrective maintenance (CM) is performed to restore the failed equipment to the operational state. In general, OEM or an agent offers various maintenance service contracts to meet the requirement of a mining
A Preventative Maintenance (PM) strategy is most appropriate when assets meet one or more of the following criteria: • Assets that are subject to predictable wear-out and consumable replacement. • Assets whose failure patterns are known and can be modelled. • Assets that are highly regulated for health and safety reasons (Examples: elevators and fire protection equipment). • Assets that can be effectively captured under a service contract (Examples: HVAC, landscaping, janitorial). 1.3.3 Predictive Maintenance (PDM) This maintenance strategy is based on monitoring and measuring the condition of the assets to determine whether they will fail during some future period and then taking appropriate action to avoid the consequences of that failure.

b) Secondary Data Secondary data is information gathered from previous study or researchers as references. It may come from various external sources including the newspaper, articles, journal and book. The researcher used the data from previous study since it is less expensive method to gather the data. The data from secondary data is useful and accurate for the study. VARIABLES AND
There are still many companies that are still using the reactive maintenance system, but without any success. They are always in need of repairing and replacing machinery, because of not monitoring the machinery and ensuring longer lifespan. Proactive maintenance is much more efficient and offers more benefits to a company. This is if the correct software is being
However, the constraint of secondary data is that the data may not be up to date and not necessarily will meet the exact needs of the research as it was collected for other purpose. Nonetheless, it serves as a great value for exploratory research because such research is meant to study about secondary data. In this research, secondary data is obtained from online journals and articles, mostly from ProQuest, a database for various e-books and journals. 3.3 Sampling Design 3.2.1 Target Population Sekaran (2003) refers population as the entire group of people, events, or things that the researcher wishes to investigate (Sekaran, 2003). The major focus of this research is to investigate which factors among the three variables – customer satisfaction, brand reputation, product quality, contribute the most impact to brand loyalty towards Nestle’s products.
The primary data is a data that collected from the respondents. In this research, a questionnaire was chosen as data distributor. The questionnaire was given to the 70 students of KPTM KL randomly. The information obtains from the questionnaire regarding the presentation assessments, will be used as primary data. 3.5.1 QUESTIONNAIRE Questionnaire is questions given to the selected respondents to get information needed.
