Control plans considered a form or a work instruction?

I have always considered a control plan to be a work instruction.

Our document control person has filed them under forms.

Thoughts?

Hello Jerry,

You can call them whatever you want and whatever sounds good to you.

But if I can make a suggestion...a control plan is not a form.
A form usually requires entries. The control plan does not.

Hope this helps.

Re: Control Plan Question

The template does, but after its completed it becomes a work instruction. No data input used as a quality record.

We control the template as a "form". After it is filled out it is controlled as an instruction in the folder for that item#. :D

IMO every form is a work instruction.

Every form includes the instructions as how to act. These instructions can be "understood" for example
Name: ----- Date:-------

What is written is--(Please write your name/date in the following space)

In my mind the various "pieces of paper" should be filed according to their relevance to a process and not according to the colour/size/definition

Hi,

I agree with Russ. As long it is not filled, it is a form. But when it is filled it is a work instruction.

Gee, I always considered a Control Plan to be a Control Plan... :confused:

The blank template version is certainly a form, as everyone has said, but the completed ones are part specific documents. I say handle them the same way you handle the other part specific documents.
