An Inspection and Test Plan (ITP) is a preset number of inspections that get applied to a Project or Phase. Which checklists are to be used and in what order are predetermined.
You can simply add an Inspection & Test Plan (ITP) to a Phase, rather than creating an ITP Template. This will bring up a selection of checklists when the inspector is in "Plan mode" during the selection process.

3. Click on "Phase" in the Process Menu, if the ITP is phase specific.
