In a recent customer audit, I learned about a different approach to control plans. I would appreciate learning how others are tackling this requirement. So, far this is what I have seen:

One control plan for every one or two tier QS9000 firm only.

One to a few control plans that are generic enough to represent the facility. All exceptions (for individual products) are noted in appendices.

Anyone doing it differently? What process have you found to be value added (i.e. help with improvement rather than just meet the requirements)?

If you have a procedure please outline in post or email.

Thanks in advance.

Steve - I don't know if you've downloaded and read thru my 'course':

APQP and Control Plan pdf file

But - you might if you haven't.

You can do this in many ways. The 'old' way was product specific. Most of my clients do a control plan for a machine or line because they do more than 1 part. The machine is an operation, if you will, so failure modes will be common no matter what the part - except in some very special circumstances (which I can't even really think of an example to right off hand.

If you download the pdf file, this should be illustrated somewhere around slide 36.

Also, check out:

FMEA pdf

There's some info there as well. This is an older version - I'll post an update here soon.

Actually both are somewhat 'older'. I always keep them a version or 2 behind my 'current' revision 'cause I do like to have something to 'sell'.

Bottom line - IMHO do 'generics'. Less overall work.
