  • Develop the Measurement System Analysis Plan for the program:
  • Negotiate, together with our Engineering and Program Managers, acceptable GD&T targets and acceptances.
  • Evaluate the gaging strategy required to meet the GD&T.
  • Ensure that Gage Studies (Gage R&R, Bias, Linearity and Stability) are conducted on all gaging used on the program and that appropriate corrective actions are taken to improve Gage R&R where data indicates.
  • Ensure the Manufacturing Quality Systems for the Prototype and Pre-Production builds (e.g., Operation Instructions, Incoming Inspection Instructions, Containment Instructions, etc.) are specified on the Control Plan.
  • Ensure an Appearance Manual / Boundary Book associated with known acceptable / unacceptable product conditions.  Ensure known unacceptable product conditions are listed on the Containment / Safe Launch Checklist for End-of-Line and Containment Inspections.
  • Review completed Inspection Reports for components and assemblies for the Prototype and Pre-Production builds.  This includes identifying the parts required to be built, ensuring defect data is properly gathered in accordance with the Inspection Instructions and product drawings, compile the data into useful prioritized trends and develop root causes and corrective actions with the development team to counteract any resulting issues.
  • Assist Engineering and Program Managers to Develop Design Verification Plan & Reports (DVPR).  Review test results / analysis, develop root causes and corrective actions with the development team to counteract any resulting issues, and obtain Engineering concurrence.
  • Review Capability Studies and document for all program critical characteristics, and ensure that Engineering requirements are met.
  • Manage/support the appearance approval process from pre-grain to PPAP, including identifying the parts required to be built.
  • Ensure dimensional verification.  This includes identifying the parts required to be built, ensuring dimensional data is properly gathered in accordance with the Engineering requirements and product drawings / GD&T / gaging / fixturing / CMM-Metrology, compile the data into useful acceptable / unacceptable conditions, and develop root causes and corrective actions with the development team to counteract any resulting.
  • Deliver approved PPAP packages to development team.  (Also may be required for initial PPAP of Service parts.)
