I am a newbie in the mechanical industry and am learning as I go. I have a supplier who is supplying a new shaft to us using aircraft quality material being in an automotive application. They have recently purchased a new Vertical mill cnc machine and I need to audit it. I am just not sure what to look for, besides capability studys. The machine will mill a slot and then add square features to the shaft. Any help or checklists i can refere to would be much appreciated.

Are you auditing the mechanics of the machine or the output of the machine
