What is the linkage between Process Plan, Process FMEA and Control Plan

The linkage between a Process Plan, PFMEA (Process Failure Mode and Effects Analysis), and a Control Plan is that they are all tools used in the quality planning and control phase of product design and manufacturing.

A Process Plan outlines the steps, materials, and equipment required to produce a product.

The PFMEA identifies potential failure modes of the process and the effects that each failure mode could have on the product and customer.

The Control Plan, based on the information from the Process Plan and PFMEA, outlines the specific measures and techniques to be taken to prevent or detect the failure modes and mitigate their effects.

Together, these three documents form a comprehensive plan for ensuring the quality of a product and the reliability of the manufacturing process.
