    In very general terms, it's like a "mini" quality management system for a product, process or contract.

    That is just one example. I have had experience of Quality Plans for Oil rig construction and major telecoms equipment construction and installation. Those quality plans were not how a dimension was checked etc.

    Certainly depends on the context. The OP asked a vey broad question with no detail. If it's product quality you're referring to, get the AIAG APQP (advanced product quality planing) book. It can help provide guidance.

    Hi, Good day for every one, i am new to this platform, its really very fruit full. Please help me to understand the quality plan, actually we are service providing company and the projects long for 3 to 4 months so is it important to develop a quality plan for the project or it depends on the customer requirement. Although its not mandatory to develop a quality plan, right? And our nature of work is always different in each projects, its actually every type of service providing to the power plants

    Hi @Rajan Gupta,
    Please don't mistake a control plan to a quality plan, they are very different. Control plan is a breakdown plan to identify process activities, controls, characteristics, dimensional parameters, how its measured and what the reaction to failure is. It is process specific.
    A Quality plan is usually requested by a customer and is used to describe in detail how the business will achieve customer specific requirements. Within the quality plan you would state specific quality goals, objectives and how they are achieved relative to the plan. quite often we have provided numerous control plans to support a quality plan.

    Hi @Laila Bano, I wouldn't create a quality plan for small projects unless it was a customer request. Use a standard project plan and maybe a control plan would be better suited here to give you a clear idea of the current process controls.

    Hi everyone. I am a little confused now. What is a quality plan anyway? It is a document, just like the quality manual? Can any one share some example?

    A "mini" quality management system for a product, process or contract. So basically it contains everything which this product, process or contract needs to meet the requirements to achieve its intended results, such as "how to do", "what to do", "when to do", "who to do" etc., right?
