This preliminary report will outline all initial aspects for the planning stages required of the ENG4111 research project. This being the third formal assessment piece for the research project, it will provide a greater understanding of the subject it is based on. This subject for the research report is to identify strategies for minimising defects by integrating scheduling with quality management.

The aim and objectives of the project is to provide relevant information on the strategies used to minimise defects in residential construction through scheduling and quality management, which will be discussed in further detail. The following objectives were further refined as to confirm what requirements were necessary to achieve the aim and objective of this research report. An extensive literature review is undertaken, providing background information to establish strategies that are effective in reducing defects in residential construction through scheduling and quality management.

Important effects are reviewed and potential outcomes are discussed in this research report. The methodology for this research project is discussed to determine the process that will be adopted to achieve the aims and objectives already set in place, this forming part of the project specification.

In addition, safety issues are mentioned and analysed to ensure there are no major concerns throughout the research. Along with safety issues, a risk assessment has been undertaken to ensure the processes part of the methodology is appropriate and risks are acknowledged. An investigation into the research requirements to identify resources that are necessary to assist in identifying schedules.
