1.1   General
This document establishes the requirements for performing and documenting FAI. It is emphasized the requirements specified in this document are complementary (not alternative) to customer and applicable statutory and regulatory requirements.
1.2   Purpose
The primary purpose of FAI is to verify and validate product realization processes are capable of producing characteristics that meet engineering and design requirements. A well-planned and executed FAI by a multi-disciplinary team (e.g. members from responsible functions) provides objective evidence the manufacturer’s processes can produce compliant product; having effectively understood and incorporated the associated requirements.
NOTE   A FAI is not a product acceptance document. While interrelated, FAI and product acceptance are separate activities. The focus of FAI is verification of production processes via assessment of product. FAI and supporting documentation do not provide assurance regarding conformance for product acceptance purposes; neither does the lack of a FAI necessarily imply product is nonconforming to engineering and design requirements.
FAI will:
-   provide confidence, through objective evidence, the product realization processes are capable of producing conforming product;
-   demonstrate the manufacturers and processors of the product have an understanding of the associated requirements;
-   provide assurance of product conformance at the start of production and after changes, as outlined in this document.
A FAI is intended to:
-   mitigate risks associated with production startup and process changes;
-   reduce future escapes;
-   help ensure product safety;
-   improve quality, delivery, and customer satisfaction;
-   reduce costs and production delays associated with product nonconformances;
-   identify product realization processes not capable of producing conforming characteristics and initiate and/or validate associated corrective actions.
-
1.3   Application
This document applies to organizations and their suppliers responsible for product realization processes that produce the design characteristics of the product. The organization shall flow down the requirements of this document to suppliers who produce design characteristics.
This document also applies to suppliers performing special process(es). A certificate of conformance (CoC) provided by processors attests to satisfying the requirements. External suppliers providing special process(es) can satisfy this document's requirements by either:
-   documenting the design characteristics and associated results on a first article inspection report (FAIR); or
-   documenting the design characteristics and associated results on a detailed CoC.
This document applies to assemblies, sub-assemblies, and detail parts including castings, forgings, and modifications to standard catalogue or commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) items. Each of these items have a separate FAI.
Unless contractually required, this document does not apply to:
-   development and prototype parts that are not considered as part of the first production run;
-   procured standard catalogue item, COTS, or deliverable software. When these items are included in an assembly, they shall be documented in the index of part numbers in an assembly FAIR.
1.4   Informative
If there is a conflict between the requirements of this document, and customer or applicable statutory/regulatory requirements, the latter takes precedence.
In this document, the following verbal forms are used:
-   "shall" indicates a requirement;
-   "should" indicates a recommendation;
-   "may" indicates a permission;
-   "can" indicates a possibility or a capability.
Information marked as "NOTE" is for guidance in understanding or clarifying the associated requirement .

1.1   General
This document is primarily intended to apply to new parts and products intended to be produced in an on-going production phase but can also be applied to parts currently in production (e.g., manufacturing, maintenance). This document is applicable to all production processes that influence the variation of KCs, as well as maintenance and service processes in which KCs are identified. It applies to organizations for assemblies and all levels of parts within an assembly, down to the basic materials including castings and forgings, and to organizations that are responsible for producing the design characteristics of the product.
The variation control process begins with product definition, typically stated in the design documentation (e.g., digital model, engineering drawing, specification) which identifies KCs, and leads to a variation management process for those KCs. This process may also be used for producer-identified KCs (e.g., process KCs, additional/substitute product KCs).
Producers and their subcontractors are responsible for flow down of the standard requirements to those external providers, who produce design characteristics and provide production and service provisions, to ensure that KCs conform to the customer’s requirements.
1.2   Purpose
This document is designed to drive the improvement of manufacturing and maintenance processes through adequate planning and effective management of KC variation. This focus is intended to improve uniformity (less variation or minimum variation of product KCs) and acceptance probability of the end-product.
NOTE   Control of a product or process KC per this document does not constitute, nor imply acceptance of the resulting product. If variation management, under this document, is to be part of an acceptance decision, the requirements need to be specified in the applicable product acceptance plan or contract.
1.3   Convention
The following conventions are used in this document:
-   "shall" indicates a requirement;
-   "should" indicates a recommendation;
-   "may" indicates a permission; and
-   "can" indicates a possibility or a capability.
