What are Control Plans?

The intent of a Control Plan is to create a structured approach for control of process and product elements while focusing the organization on characteristics important to the customer. An important part of a Control Plan is a Reaction Plan that clearly specifies what action to take in case an out-of-control condition occurs.

Development and use of Control Plans are a vital aspect of a comprehensive Advanced Quality Planning Process (APQP). The Advanced Quality Planning Process was originated by the Automotive Industry Action Group to provide a common, standardized process for planning, developing and communicating the requirements and status of new products and services to improve the process for New Product Introductions (NPI).
