First the concept of plan has come
Plan is a concept where the programs are placed (DBRM's) in other sence, Plan is a collection of DBRM's
Each DBRM constitute a Package, and no of packages constitute a plan.
So the modified definetion of the plan is "Collection of DBRM's"
Advantage of Packages over the plan,
I have program A and Program B (subprogram called by program A)
I precomile and place theirs DBRM's in plan. Now a need is their to change the program B. So I need to precompile both Program A and Program B, after chaning the code of Program B
So a concept of Package, Package make only the location like to mainprogram.
If I want to change Program B, I need to Precompile only it. So their is no need to precompile Program A
