The Quality Assurance Plan contains the Review and Audit Plan, and references a number of other artifacts
developed during the Inception phase. It is maintained throughout the project.
It is a process-oriented work product and highlights those elements of the RUP that are the
contributors to achievement of quality objectives. The Quality Assurance Plan will not contain details of the
techniques, criteria, metrics, and so on, of the peer reviews and evaluations whose focus is product. It requires, as a
matter of compliance with the RUP, the details of product quality evaluation to be provided in the Evaluation Plan
section of the Software Development Plan and in the Test Plan.
