Inspection & Verification Production
Control # 140.2 / Rev. / A
To establish work instructions for production projects.
The Manufacturing Manager and his staff shall maintain this procedure and
the process that it controls.
Department Managers have direct responsibility for implementing and maintaining inspection
and verification work instructions.
The Quality Manager is responsible for stamps used to indicate inspection status.
There are three basic types of manufacturing processed at PPC :
Prototype - This type of project or process is experimental in
nature. The process is controlled by the engineer and / or the customer. The Project
Manager for this job or process has overall responsibility for determining the required
inspection, test, process controls and documenting the results.
Production - This type of project or process is often referred to
as "Short Run" or "Production Work". This type of work includes
tooling, special machines, production and lower volume manufacturing and assembly work.
Assembly - Assembly is similar to production with additional
assembly process requirements. Reference the assembly work instructions.
1 Release to Production
The Engineering Manager and/or Process Engineer release orders to
Refer to the procedure for Estimating, Engineering and Processing.
2 Standard Procedure for Production Processes
Review and Release
The Supervisor receives drawings and instructions from engineering.
Receiving reviews the drawings and instructions for material requirements.
3 Material Verification
Prior to starting the manufacturing process, verify the material. The job
card is signed off by receiving inspection.
Reference the procedure for receiving inspection.
4 Setup & In-Process Inspection
The Department Manager will review the drawing with the operator for any
questions or potential problems that may exist.
The assigned operator will verify that the material is correct and matches PP#s.
The operator makes any machine set ups to produce the required product.
5 First Piece Inspection
A first piece inspection is required on all production lots. The operator
is responsible for verifying the first piece. When the set up has been completed, the
operator will bring the 1st article part into the In-Process Inspection area and will
inspect all blueprint or operational step print dimensions.
Unless otherwise indicated by engineering, the setup part is inspected
by the operator.
The operator makes any adjustments and processes the job per print or
The operator is required to inspect on the first production part, each
dimension or specification on the print, process and supplemental instructions provided by
After verifying the part meets spec, the operator has inspection check
out all dimensions prior to going into production.
The operator uses instructions from engineering or inspection for
6 Outside Processes
The part is inspected before and after an outside process..
The person conducting the receiving inspection shall stamp the job card and include the
date received and a note of what process was inspected.
Non-Conforming material or processes will be recorded on a DMR (Discrepant Material
Report) and in the receiving log.
7 Verification of Inspection
The operator is required to place his/her initials on the job card.
When required, the operator will completely fill out the control plan according to
instructions from engineering.
8 Moving Parts & Jobs
Completed part is forwarded to the next destination by the operator or
9 Final Inspection
The job card and/or control plan are used for final inspection. The final
inspection checklist is completed before the product is shipped. This record is retained
for the duration of the contract.
Records will be retained for 10 years.
Defects or non-conforming lots will be recorded on a DMR and reviewed with the QA
10 Post Production Requirements
Return all prints, processes, charts, etc. to engineering when complete.
Engineering will review the job to determine if safety, quality, efficiency and capacity
requirements have been made.
Processes will be updated as necessary and corrective actions documented.
