The Quillen Q-construction (Quillen 72) is a tool for producing the algebraic K-theory of a Quillen exact category $\mathcal{C}$. The Quillen Q-construction is generalized (Waldhausen 83, section 1.9) by the Waldhausen S-construction which applies more generally to Waldhausen categories. (However, the Quillen Dévissage theorem? does not generalize to Waldhausen categories.)
Both these constructions appear in stable homotopy theory as special cases of the concept of algebraic K-theory of a stable (∞,1)-category (Haugseng 10, Barwick 13).
The construction is due to
