AS9102 states "The organization shall perform a full FA or a partial FAI for affected characteristics, when any of the following occurs: A lapse in production for two years shall require an update for any characteristics that may be impacted by the inactivity".

Help me understand

what could impact the characteristics of a part based on inactivity?

how could the characteristic of a part be impacted based on inactivity?

These might be the same question. However, just trying to understand who inactivity could impact a characteristics?

The characteristic remains the same. The requirement for the FA, after a period of inactivity is for the supplier to demonstrate it's ability to deliver the part within the specification. If a tool or production equipment has not been utilized in a long period of time, things might have deteriorated.

Four thoughts on figuring out what to check and the types of things that could be affected by not building a part for a couple of years:

(1) Check everything with a significant process change in the two year period--new machines, machines with major overhauls or modifications, major process changes, processes with many small changes that in total may be a significant change, changes in the type of tooling used, new or upgraded manufacturing software, changes is chemicals used or chemical concentration, and similar.

(2) Check processes which require significant human skills that have been unused for a while because people may be out of practice. Also part specific aspects of human skills dependent processes.

(3) Anything unusual or unique about the part as compared to other parts. A process change that only affects unusual parts may not have been detected by a failure on another job.

(4) Talk to your customer. Some customers may see this as a big deal and want a full FA. Others may tell you they only care about certain things, in which case a partial FA covering the customer concerns and the items above may be sufficient.

Exactly where to draw the line depends on the type of products and their use.
