Quality control plan: What you need to know?

A quality control plan refers to the techniques and activities that are used to control that a product or service remains consistent to the requirements and specifications pertaining to quality.

For successful project management the quality process must be integrated into all phases of the project.

Quality control plan
A good quality control plan can be the difference between a project meeting the expectations of a client and a completely failed one.

A sample of a quality control plan for a software company:

Feasibility study

In the preliminary study phase, quality will depend on the studies that are conducted in order to clearly state the objectives of the projects and also provide a clear assessment of the customer expectations. Quality control plan will also be concerned on whether the solutions which are provided are coherent at every stage of the projects.

Implementation stage

The quality control at this stage consists of the verification of the methodology used and on the other hand to make sure that everything is done as per the specifications.

Test phases

The test phases consist of verifying on one hand the smooth workings of applications delivered and on the other hand, the match between the functions performed by these applications and functions specified in the requirements.

Control aspect

Effective control system should be put in place to ensure that everything is in place. It is however important that the test is really adapted to the project.

Test by Independent person

During the test phase, it is important to repeat some tests at random by another person to limit the risk of error.

Control of remedial efforts

The anomalies detected during the test phases should give rise to a correction in terms of configuration and development. New tests should then take place within the framework of the quality process to ensure that the corrections work.
