First Article Inspection

A First Article Inspection (FAI) is a quality control process that verifies that the initial production run of a product meets the required specifications and design intent. It’s a comprehensive review of the product’s design, production process, and output to ensure the product will perform as intended when it reaches the customer.

The outcome of the FAI is a detailed report that documents the results of the inspection and identifies any non-conformances or deviations from the design specifications. This information is used to make any necessary improvements to the design, production process, or product output to ensure that future production runs meet the required standards.

Overall, the FAI is an important step in ensuring that the product meets the required specifications and is fit for its intended purpose. It helps to prevent potential problems and ensures that the customer receives a high-quality product.
