iqs PP/CP
Inspection Plan and Control Plan

Check only where it is necessary: iqs PP/CP generates inspection plans directly and quickly with iqs building block technology or directly from the technical drawing.

Well-organized inspections

To guarantee product quality, various inspections can be carried out across the entire value chain, if required, i.e. from incoming goods, to various production stages, and to outgoing goods. The iqs Inspection Planning (PP/CP) facilitates to create inspection and control plans for the areas of incoming / outgoing goods inspection, for intermediate inspections, and SPC.

Greater efficiency thanks to drawing integration

Drawing integration in iqs PP/CP considerably accelerates the process of creating inspection plans. All required inspection plan positions are taken directly from CAD data to the inspection plan. The transfer of characteristics from scanned drawings is carried out with the support of optical character recognition, OCR.


Simplify your inspection plan creation! Create various building blocks for your inspection plan based on product families and similar processes. Once created, these building blocks can be reused quickly and easily due to the iqs inheritance technology in part-specific inspection plans, and adapted individually at any time.

Reduce inspection costs

Thanks to the close connection between the iqs PP/CP and the iqs FMEA module, each individual inspection will be fully justified – unnecessary inspections are systematically identified and eliminated. The inspection effort is based on real requirements, resulting in significant reduction of costs and time. You can now justify remaining inspections internally or to customers at any time.

Complete documentation

With iqs PP/CP you can generate a detailed inspection plan history for each product at the touch of a button. You can access all versioned and complete inspection plans at any time – for example during audits or customer visits.


  • Central inspection planning for the areas of incoming / outgoing goods inspection, intermediate inspections, and SPC
  • CAD data integration – automatic creation of inspection plans by clicking directly on the characteristics in the drawing, and automatic adjustment of the inspection plans when drawing changes occur
  • Support of article, process, cavity, tool and machine related inspections
  • Process and product family inspection plans
  • Simple document maintenance using inheritance and building block technology
  • Determination of the required inspection size, e.g. according to AQL
  • Individual inspection intervals with reference to time, quantity, and batch
  • Supplementation of inspection plans with videos, images, inspection specifications, drawings
  • Calculated characteristics
  • Multiple use of characteristics
  • Inspection note for each characteristic
  • When creating an inspection plan from FMEA, any number of FMEA product characteristics functions with the same cause can be assigned to an inspection characteristic
  • Reduction of inspection effort through the definition of proxy characteristics
  • Inspection equipment allocated directly from iqs Inspection Equipment Management (PMV)
  • Link to existing inspection equipment capability studies, e.g. solara.MP from Q-DAS
  • Justified testing based on FMEA
  • Synchronization of FMEA, Inspection Plan and Control Plan (integrated production plan)
  • Automatic generation of flow charts and inspection information boards
  • Release and versioning of documents with history
