Control Plan

Going by the books, “Control Plan is a method for documenting the functional elements of quality control that are to be implemented in order to assure that quality standards are met for a particular product or service. The intent of the control plan is to formalize and document the system of control that will be utilized”.

According to us, “a Control Plan is a living document that summarizes the steps needed to be carried out to control a process. It is a management tool that monitors the critical inputs and identifies the outputs in a process so as to continually meet the product or service goals, for which a control chart is prepared. Using this we can maintain the desired state of the process and simultaneously minimize variations in the process and the product quality. The chief aim is to manage the appropriate level of control and to follow the standards for a better quality management. Inspection, analysis and action are the three phases which completes a proper implementation of it. Control plan defines the way in which the organization plans for monitoring of performance in process. Also the data which is required to be gathered for references and the frequency in which it is needed to be collected is monitored. The actions that are needed to be taken on an out-of-control condition are also stated.”
