Quality planning is the development of procedures in line with the prevailing standards. Preparation of documentation for the needs of production, selection of suppliers of materials and services, technical and personnel tools that ensure the performance of products in accordance with the adopted criteria. It also helps in developing methods that are used to perform measuring activities. When planning the quality, the stages of work are determined and the order of their execution is determined, as well as the methods of feedback analysis. stages and order of work. It provides analysis of feedback and helps in taking actions to improve and eliminate errors. Quality planning is a process focused on philosophical thinking that involves establishing and maintaining pride in our neighbourhood. It is based on the recognition of the entire habitat in which we live and work in. Then, quality planning is a continuous attitude based on documenting the process. To impelemnt an overall concept, the process needs to involve both program changes and changes in facilities that may improve this total value [1].

All actions are parts of a quality planning idea. It is a better way of doing business without being overpriced [2]:

  • Quality planning means a team of multi-tasking professionals.
  • Quality planning does not automatically cost more money.

The basic idea for quality planning[edit]

The basic idea for product quality planning is to improve communication and collaboration between engineering actions. Therefore, this project involves the involvement of a cross-functional team, including product design, marketing, procurement, production and distribution. The goal is to ensure a pure understanding of the voice and the client and to translate it into requirements, technical specifications and specific characteristic [3].

Quality planning[edit]

The terms of advanced quality planning and advanced product quality planning are applied. Advanced quality planning is the kind of a methodology that focuses on the design / evolution of a supplier's manufacturing idea to ensure that it is able to produce parts that meet design demands at the specified tooling capacity. Advanced product quality planning is in the meantime a structural technique for defining and performing all the activities that are necessary to ensure the customer's satissfaction. To succeed in advanced quality planning and advanced product quality planning, a team approach is needed and open communication is mandatory. The goal of an advanced product quality planning process is to aid communication between all the people and activities inspired in the program. It is to ensure that all required steps are finished on time, with high quality events at fair costs and quality levels. All in all, the following should be taken into account communication, teamwork, planning and identify activities [4].

The answer is very simple but also difficult to implement because of continunous changes inside/outside the company or organization:

  • Teamwork (must be multifunctional and multidisciplinary),
  • Communication (it has to be open and two ways),
  • Time and planning (must be appropriate, relevant and realistic), you must specify all the activities.

Quality planning includes the establishment of inspections to ensure product quality during production. These checks, carried out during the production process, involve sampling techniques and statistical process controls for dimensional control of production part lots, selected checks on the critical dimensions of product parts, non-destructive testing and final product checking. Quality plans are usually formatted in such an order in which production operations take place, identifying all tests from the start to completion of a part or a product. The plans are improved by a quality control engineer. The quality control engineer assumes responsibility for monitoring the compliance of the company with quality planning by reviewing and auditing production departments [5].
