Contains a list of vital inputs to be controlled and outputs to be monitored, along with the tools to be used for controlling or monitoring these variables. The control plan references the settings of these variables together with any required tolerances, and, most importantly, it references all controls put in place from Poka-Yoke (mistake proofing) to Audits.
|When to Use||Purpose|
|End of project||Provides a formal place to record final project settings, tolerances, and controls (including frequencies, responsibilities, and reaction plans) .|
|Post-project||Documents the necessary ongoing control and monitoring activities and provides a location to document changes to the controls.|
No data requirements exist because you only use this tool to collect and organize data.
Record all pertinent control and monitoring information for vital inputs and outputs. This typically implies that the control plan will have a record of the variables/activities to be controlled and the general method that will be used to control each item. Specific details of the controls for the items may be contained elsewhere.
