The lack of integration between production control and quality management has been pointed out as a common problem in the construction sector. This paper discusses the impact of this problem in the generation of waste that are typical in this sector, such as making-do, rework and uncompleted work. Based on that discussion, this paper proposes an integrated production and quality control method, which is focused on the elimination three waste categories: making-do, unfinished work, and work-in- progress. The method is divided in three modules: (a) identification and measurement of making-do events, (b) identification of informal packages, and (c) integrated production and quality control. The main contributions of this study are concerned with the understanding waste in construction, and the relationship between different types of waste.
