First Article Build (FAB) Process - Build and Test Aspects

The organisation is not in the Aerospace industry but have a FAB process in place. The process helps minimise technical and commercial risks with new products (assemblies and sub asemblies) to ensure that product and design requirements are met and FAB aspects such as documentation, equipment, process requirements allow production to run as intended with fewer issues.
This appears to be a watered down FAI process but the issues I have is that FAB is followed through 'Build' and 'Test' rather than after the assembly has been completed. If all documentation of the manufacturing (build) processes i.e. routing, plans and work instructions are reviewed at the end, then cannot understand why the build and test should be followed through each stage. The results are discussed after completion anyhow and dont see the advantage of this. Would value your comments

I think I understand your frustration in doing double the amount of documentation. While you might be correct - what is management take on this process and are they aware of it.

The process was created by engineering but unless the evaluation activities are recognised before doing a build and test, there is a good chance in data being missed which should have been captured. Also, if the FAB process is carried out during build and test, NCRs or ECOs that are raised should be closed before the operation proceeds to the next stage.

OK:confused:

If management is aware of this and has accepted this - what is your question...
