Hi Alexa,

Yes, you want to create a response plan for every process that is in control. The idea is that you are providing a handbook of what to do should a currently in-control process suddenly become out of control.

This way we are able to lock in the gains and the improvements we’ve made to a process.

Best, Ted.

Thank you for calling it to my attention!

Best, Ted.
