A Quality Plan is a document setting out the specific quality practices, resources, and sequence of activities relevant to a particular product, project, or contracts.
A quality plan usually makes reference to the parts of the quality manual applicable to the specific case. Depending on the scope of the plan, a qualifier may be used, for example, "quality assurance plan," "quality management plan."
It integrates quality philosophies into an organization’s environment.
The plan will include specific continuous improvement strategies and actions.
Plans are developed at all levels from company to plant. Lower level plans should support the company’s strategic objectives.
A quality plan emphasizes defect prevention through continuous improvement rather than defect detection.
