The purpose of this chapter is to present a methodology for developing Control, Measurement and Monitoring Plans. It aims to apply risk-based thinking associated with the works control plan. The failures and rework of the works must not be accepted as inevitable or even as certainties. They must be considered permanent challenges to their management. The importance of using risk assessment techniques in the planning and control of the production activities of the works is evident. Control, measurement and monitoring process should provide the assessment of risks and failures, should demonstrate technical compliance of the work, and should improve operational efficiency. Thus, it is important to define a methodology for the preparation of the Control, Measurement and Monitoring Plan (PCMM), to be implemented in the execution of the works, in order to ensure the conformity of the works with its technical and regulatory requirements. It must establish which the trials and control inspections, its acceptance criteria, its purposes, frequencies and responsible and it must also identify and assess its risks.
