Re: Difference between control plan and SOP

Dear Mr. Swapnil,

SOP means Standard Operating Procedure, and Control Plan is a whole plan to control a manufacturing unit, SOP is also a part of Control Plan.

there are many types of Control in a manufacturing unit like Document control, Process control, personnel control etc.

In SOP, defined the standard procedure of each and every work in the plant or unit.

Dear swapnil,

there is a wide difference in between SOP and CONTROL PLAN ,

control plan is a standardized document for controlling the variation in process and product for a manufecturing system .

and SOP is named as a workinstruction that mean how to perform a work so that the variation will be minimum.

Nice advice from everyone, but here's the real deal...it doesn't really matter what anything is called as long as people know what's being talked about. I visit different organizations all the time who use their own terms and language and I couldn't care less as long as they understand and can tell me what they mean.

Don't get all wrapped around the axle worrying over nits. Spend your time on real issues.
