Abstract: An automated support system is need for quality assurance (QA) enforcement of real property maintenance activities (RPMA) contracts under the Army-wide Commercial Activities (CA) Program. A QA Scheduling and Inspection Management System (QASIMS) was developed to satisfy this need. THE QASIMS Program can help Army Directorates of Public Works (DPWs) effectively use available QA resources. Personal computers (PCs), efficient software, future data collection requirements, and QA requirements for CA contract management justify eliminating the manual performance of repetitive and simple deductive QA functions. A full use of the DPW data base resource for planning, scheduling, and managing QA at Army installations has been a primary consideration in the development of QASIMS. The assistance provided by QASIMS to QA management control and to QA Evaluator (QAE) inspection scheduling will allow more time for on-site inspection work and the direct monitoring of CA contracts. This user's manual describes the functional and performance requirements of QASIMS and provided the necessary guidance to the application of this program in a modern DPW environment
