Just some "thoughts" - there are many ways to approach this:

Counting to determine the magnitude - and assessing the risk in realistic terms.

Example 2 parts of 5,000 may or may not be large enough to justify "documented correction" UNLESS the 2 defectives have an underlying life-safety criticality attached to it. - which increases the liability risk to the producer.

A level can be set at 0.5% per lot (or whichever size & % your management is comfortable with) as a "threshold" level indicating a documented action should take place.

If the root cause of a problem "occurs 4 times weekly" obviously there is a high level of risk of re-occurance, until documented correction can settle the matter.


(For example) If we produce 10,000 parts and 2 are found 0.05mm short of specified legnth
the magnitude and risk of re-occurance is viewed here as not being justified for documented actions.

Probably did not answer your question entirely - but possibly others have a better viewpoint - or other approaches to a complex wide open for interpretation standards statement.

Regards
Jim

Christine,

Think about a complete FMEA review of the process in question.

Using the FMEA as a living tool is good business practice and a good way to document that the magnitude of a problem is researched.

Depending on your customers, a FMEA review is sometimes required for all corrective actions. This thought process works just as well for documenting preventive actions.

Discrepancies

How do you define the magnitude of the problem and risks encountered when corrective and preventive action is taken
