Control Plan (CP) - The intent of a process control plan is to control the product characteristics and the associated process variables to ensure capability (around the identified target or nominal) and stability of the product over time.

The process Failure Modes and Effects Analysis (FMEA) is a document to identify the risks associated with something potentially going wrong (creating a defect - out of specification) in the production of the product. The FMEA identifies what controls are placed in the production process to catch any defects at various stages on the processing.

Every completed Six Sigma project should have not only a control chart (if applicable), but a control plan. This ensures that the process doesn't revert to the way it previously operated.

Control Plans - Control Plans are written descriptions of the systems for controlling parts and processes. They are written by suppliers to address the important characteristics and engineering requirements of the product. Each part shall have a Control Plan, but in many cases, "family" Control Plans can cover a number of parts produced using a common process. Customer approval of Control Plans may be required prior to production part submission.
