Control Plans

The Inspection Requirements for specific Part Number, Revision and Router Operation Step can be defined using Control Plans.

A Control Plan defines What to Inspect, How to Inspect, Method of Inspection and the Pass / Fail Criteria.

Control Plans are Copied and Linked to Each Inspection record when it exists.  Inspectors Complete the Inspection Requirement report and Determine the Lot Results – Pass / Fail.

The use of Control Plans provides a Consistent Approach to How Product is Inspected and the Inspection History is helpful in Identifying Trends.

Control Plans In-Use – Inspection Resuts

If a Control Plan exists for a Receiving Inspection process, the Control Plan Definition is copied into the Receiving Inspection record.  The Receiver / Inspector is notified of the Inspection Method through the combination of the Part Number, Revision Level and Supplier defined in the Control Plan. In the event the Inspection Method is an AQL Sampling Plan, the Number of Pieces to be inspected is provided based on the Lot Size of the Quantity Recieved.

The Inspector must complete all sections of the Inspection Report. In the case when a Measurement is required, the Inspector is provided an entry screen to enter each measurement of each unit inspected.

Based on the Inspection results, the Inspector will either Accept or Reject the Lot. If the Lot is Rejected, a Nonconforming record is Automatically created, and the Defects are Itemized in the Inspection Record for Review and Dispositioning.

In Process Inspection points follow the same process.
