Contractor shall provide
objective evidence with each shipment that all the articles in this
Contract/Purchase Order were dimensionally inspected for conformance with
drawing and Contract/Purchase Order requirements. Objective evidence shall
consist of records of actual dimensional readings taken during inspections of
each part, with the dimension and its tolerance noted.
All out of tolerance
measurements shall be clearly identified on the inspection records and the
disposition of that part noted by Contractor’s Quality Assurance department. This
information shall be submitted to JPL for acceptance/rejection of the
out-of-tolerance condition prior to hardware delivery.
Contractor shall identify each
inspection record to the related Contract/Purchase Order, part number,
revision, and when applicable, serial number. The management representative
responsible for Contractor’s inspection activity will certify that with
signer’s title and date of signature indicate that all of the shipped parts
were indeed inspected to the criteria specified and those actual measurements
are the ones provided. If serial numbers are not assigned, then the Contractor shall
devise a method of linking the record of dimensional measurements with the
specific part measured (i.e., taped, bagged together, etc.).
Inspection equipment (i.e.,
tools and gauges) used during dimensional measurement shall have its
identification numbering recorded and allow the ability to recall the parts
inspected with that particular inspection device in the event it is
subsequently found to be significantly out of tolerance.
