Manufacturing Plan vs Material Specification vs Control Plan

Is there a formal definition identifying the differences and links between the three?

Am I correct in saying the material spec is what they final part must fulfill, the control plan is a risk-based plan for how to control process-specific variables (the same as a process control document?). Both of which are referenced in the final manufacturing plan (including work instructions, process flow diagrams, required tools etc.)?

Many thanks

Manufacturing Plan
Document setting out the specific manufacturing practices, technical resources and sequences of activities relevant to the production of a particular product including any specified acceptance criteria at each stage

Control Plan
A document that describes a system, subsystem, component or material level for products supplied.

Plans are the result of planning which includes preparation. Plans may or may not be validated depending on the risks and consequences of failure.

Both types of plans are live documents that need regularly scheduled reviews to confirm their effectiveness. Plans often refer to specifications.

Materials Specification
Materials specs apply to input materials as well as products that are materials. And to be a spec it must be a document that states requirements (aka: acceptance criteria).

Materials (and Product) Specifications are a result of a design process so expect them to be validated. They rarely refer to plans.
