Abstract

The article deals with an innovative method designed to check project documentation of buildings at the design stage, specifically exploring the possibility to implement FMEA and PDCA methodologies. Based on performed measurements and data collection, it theoretically determines the riskiest areas of the project documentation, which should be given special attention in order to reduce later costs for construction companies to fix the reported complaints. The research proves that the application of the FMEA and PDCA methodology can be very useful regarding the elimination of defects in the project documentation of constructions already in the phase of construction preparation.
