Current Control Plans & FMEAs

A Technology/Family Control Plan / Device FMEA follows an entire flow for a ‘technology’ through a defined entity. This is in contrast with a ‘process’ flow where there is an individual Control Plan for each piece of equipment or a manufacturing ‘cell’ (company definition). A ‘Technology’ consists of many similar devices.
