  • Task: PP075-001


    Pre-Production

    Knowledge Category: IV.B.1. Material Identification, Status, and Traceability

    Functional Discipline: Quality

    ADLI Scale: IV.B.1.

    Process: Ensure Traceability Controls

    Process Purpose: 

    To ensure materials, components, and products are controlled in such a manner that traceability is assured to all specified requirements (Note: Traceability requirements may originate from various sources.). Ensure drawings, process documents, work instructions, and quality records accurately reflect applicable traceability requirements and that traceability is maintained to the level of product definition which requirements specify. Ensure product identification processes are appropriately defined.

    Supplier Emphasis: 

    To the extent a supplier sources work to sub-tier suppliers, and/or procures raw materials which have prescribed traceability requirements, ensure traceability requirements are flown down to the appropriate levels of the supplier base and that appropriate controls are in place to ensure traceability. (Note: Traceability requirements must be flowed to the lowest level of the requirement hierarchy, as appropriate.)

    Knowledge and Skills Requirements: 

    Ability to verify that suppliers/partners have processes in place to ensure materials, components, and products are controlled in such a manner that traceability is assured to specified requirements. Ability to review and verify that drawings, process documents, work instructions, and quality records accurately reflect applicable traceability requirements and that traceability is maintained to the level of product definition which requirements specify. Ability to ensure traceability controls are effectively deployed into the value-stream.
