Production Inspection and Pilot Run

The production inspection is the culmination of all our work.  In this step it is important to have a First Article Inspection done, not sure why?  Each part and assembly is inspected to assure they meet design specifications so your parts fit together as intended.


 

1. Product Design Information

2. Develop Solid Model

3. Product Review

4. Prototyping and Testing

5. Mechanical Drawings

6. Production Tooling

7. Production Pilot Run

 

                   

Production Inspection, Pilot Run and First Article Inspection

First Article Inspection


First Article Inspections are performed on every part and assembly in your product.  Product functionality and performance is also tested to assure the final production product performs and meets design specifications. 

 Why is the First Article Inspection (FAI) important?
  To verify the accuracy of parts and components produced by the vendor.  If parts and components don’t match the mechanical drawing specifications there’s a good chance the product can fail.
  To approve or reject production tooling. If parts and components don’t match the mechanical drawing specifications tooling may need to be modified. The FAI helps guide modifications.
  To establish a benchmark for future production efforts. The FAI is the founding measurement of your product. When changes are made during the life of your product, they are compared to the FAI documentation. This provides decision makers with the tools they need to make good decisions.
