Dear Covers,

For these, I am confused over the many different meanings I learned from others.

Please tell me what these mean normally?

Production part approval is to submit parts from a trial run before going into the first batch of production?

THANK YOU!

Re: First article, pilot run and preproduction trial run.

Dear Covers,

"First article, pilot run and preproduction trial run."

For these, I am confused over the many different meanings I learned from others.

Please tell me what these mean normally?
Within the context of PPAP, these words have the same meaning with the exception of "first article", that word is typically used in: "First article inspection."

Production part approval is to submit parts from a trial run before going into the first batch of production?
Well, almost... Parts from a trial run are used for: initial capability studies, Measurement System Analysis (MSA), preparation and submission of inspection/test results, retaining master samples, etc. See the AIAG PPAP manual for further details.

THANK YOU!

You're very welcome!
