Investment in coastal highway construction not only promotes the development of the transportation industry in China's coastal areas but also affects the economic and social development of China. With the continuous increase of coastal highway projects, the mileage of highways has been increasing, and the task of total quality management has become increasingly arduous. How to objectively evaluate the total quality management level and solve various problems existing in the current evaluation work has become an urgent problem for the financial investment management department. The research in this paper builds a total quality management evaluation system and decision-making model and a total quality management platform for coastal highway projects. The research in this paper has innovated and perfected the methods of evaluation decision making, has improved the efficiency of evaluation decision making and realized the efficient use of quality management funds, and has promoted the process of quality management work of coastal highway projects to be scientific and standardized.
