Hello Everyone,

I want to make an observation and then ask for recomendations. Control Plans could be a very useful tool if used properly. You can capture information on equipment used, process setups, all inspections, work instructions to be used etc. In short, you could put together an integrated document that captures your MOS, inspection plan, equipment requirements and everything else you might need to know in production. You could possibly eliminate other documents from your system.
All in a perfect world. In reality, due to the fact that the control plans must be submitted to our clients, we put an absolute minimum of generic information in the control plan. Our salesmen have been shown competitor's control plans when visiting customers, so we must assume that others are shown our control plans.
Does anyone use a generic control plan for customers and refer to a more detailed plan for internal use only? What steps have others taken to deal with this dilemma?

I welcome any thoughts or ideas.

We keep our "operation routings", and "work instructions" separate from submitted control plans. We- outline dimensions to be checked - tolerances -gaging type, operation number and critical characteristics where needed - we do not place "exact machine information" on them. This is justified here because of the "lets pass this information around factor", and we retain the flexibility of routing to exact machinery inhouse. As long as it is "customer acceptable" we keep it as simple as possible.
