I don't think in this case it was a problem with either lack or knowlege or quality of inspection. It was just a question of mistakes can happen. There's always a lot of confusion on a job site, great ideas turn out to be not so great if they increase the confusion.
No one really knew what happened, they just lost track of the fact one beam hadn't been stressed. It was record keeping, more than anything else. Maybe they stopped for lunch or switched stressing crews.
Wedges are initially hand-seated by tapping them into the anchorage. Unless you are looking closely, you could think that the tendons had already been stressed because they had the wedges in.
