Quality Assurance and Quality Control both are part of Quality Management, however QA is focused on preventing defects while QC is focused on identifying the defect.

Control Plans are critical quality assurance documents utilized to assist in achieving ISO certification; quick references during internal audits and ease operator training.

They can also be easily converted into a “Quality Audit Plan” to assist production.

A Quality Audit Plan is seen as valued added by the production team. This document outlines QUICK – but valuable - audit points that production can react to immediately when found nonconforming. The audit points should be ones agreed upon between quality and production to ensure buy in and accountablility.

This document is a quality tool that identifies process nonconformances for production because busy production supervisors cannot be everywhere, all the time – and hopefully identifying the problem before it turns into a product nonconformance. If a large amount of the quality teams focus throughout the day is on product audits, it may be too late.

If your company does not have documented Control Plans – that is OK because YOU can create a “Quality Audit Plans” without a previously established Control Plan.

This presentation will provide examples of why Control Plans are valuable and how to start creating Control Plans OR Quality Audit Plans that will become a valuable part of your quality assurance system.
