    Design

    Knowledge Category: III.B.3. Inspectability Review

    Functional Discipline: Quality

    ADLI Scale: III.B.3.

    Process: Perform Inspectability Review of Design

    Process Purpose: 

    Review engineering, process, and production requirements and assess such against the known capability to inspect/test product at the appropriate point of production to ensure conformity to design. In the event the process is found insufficient apply remediation activities such as request for design changes, process changes, or the development of new methods. Design documentation should contain the appropriate requirements for quality. (e.g., Measurement, Inspection, Key Characteristic Control, and First Article Quality Plans.) Ensure data collection capabilities support the requisite inspection, measurement and control plans.

    Supplier Emphasis:

    Perform the inspectability review with a focus on the supplier/partner base and its ability to verify product/processes to the design requirements. Focus of the inspectability review with regards to supplier/partners is to understand if suppliers/partners can meet design requirements for inspection and/or testing as well as identify if there might be alternative methods for conformity verification which might require changes to the design. Ensure data collection capabilities support the requisite inspection, measurement and control plans.

    Knowledge and Skills Requirements:

    Ability to review engineering, process, and production requirements and assess such against the known capability to inspect/test product at the appropriate point of production to ensure conformity to design. Ability to ensure that measurement, inspection, key characteristic control, and first article inspection are included in applicable design documents and/or other program control documents. Ability to evaluate process inadequacies and establish recommendations for remediation activities such as request for design changes, process changes, or the development of new methods. Ability to organize, document, store and integrate inspection requirements into the requirements hierarchy using a requirements management tool.
