Quality Management
Control Plan

A Quality Management Control Plan is an easy to read summary of your process inspection points. Please see this file for an example of a control plan. This is a nice document to present to your customers when they want to understand your production processes. The control plan presents your company's methods on monitoring and measuring the process and product conformity.

It is also useful for internal audits. The auditor can take this document and use this for the starting point of a process audit.

It is a great reference tool when you need to review your process during a corrective action activity.

The control plan is valuable for training new employees. They can easily grasp the process flow, inspection points, specifications, and process documentation all from one document.
