In Figure XI-1: Refined data Model, page 467 of PMBOK, it is shown that Work Performance Reports (generated by M&C Project Work) are used in/input to Develop Project Management Plan process.

Can someone please clarify how Work Performance Reports can be used in Develop Project Management Plan process?

let me try answering with whatever limited knowledge i have, others can correct me if needed.

you made a plan for shopping on sunday (07 Jan) 1 pm-7pm .so shopping is your project and you have made project management plan for shopping like :
scope as 3 Gowns(Plan scope mngmt)
budget as 9k (Plan cost mngmt) thinking 3 k per gown
time as 6 hrs (Plan schedule mngmt) thinking 2 hrs per gown

project (shopping) has started so execution has started and at 3 pm you want to see what and all things done or not done (monitor & control). so your:

work performance data says: 1 gown bought, 8k spent

work performance information says: cost variance is high bcoz instead of 3k per gown you have already spent 8k on one, schedule and scope going as per plan.

work performance report says:project is overbudget but on track in terms of schedule, 33% scope delivered

now you need to change your plan ( like increase initially planned overall budget of 9k to 24k) documented in PMP and come up with a modification in your intial plan so its kinda iterative process .. hence is work performance report needed to develop the PMP..

hope i was able to make some sense....
