Control plans identify the methods for measuring and monitoring production and delivery processes.
The Control Plan and APQP checklists are part of the QI Macros add-in for Microsoft Excel that automates all of the charts, forms and tools required for statistical process control (SPC) and Lean Six Sigma. There are over 80,000 registered users. The QI Macros are used by thousands of manufacturing to hold down costs and increase quality. The QI Macros consist of four parts:
1. Macros that use existing Excel data to create 21 different charts: line, run, pareto, control charts, and histograms.
