Inspection Dimensional Check Sheets - Over 500 part numbers

I have created a generic forum for operators to fill out as the are doing thier dimensional checks. On this form the operator fills in all the pertinent info(part#, dim., tol. etc.). We want to go to a preprinted document that is of the same template that will have all the pertinent info already on it. This will print when a job packet for that specific part # is created.

Now the question. We have over 500 part numbers, and what I need to know is, do we have to do anything in regard to document numbering since these will be prepreinted with all info on them but will still have the controlled # for the generic inspection sheet on them. It may sound a little confusing so if you need more clarification please let me know.

Thanks,

Kris

Re: Inspection Sheets

Kris,

The only control you have to have is on the blank (generic) inspection sheet. The information (part #, dim., tol., etc.) added does not change the original, so numbering each inspection sheet is not necessary.

The only downside to doing this, is if you revise the blank (generic) inspection sheet, then every sheet needs to be revised. Unless you start with the generic being a template (i.e. Word 2007 Template <.dot>) then when the template is revised all the sheets that were created with it are automatically updated.

Hope this is of some help...

FWIW:
In our high tech contract machining business (all custom work for other manufacturers), each part had a Control Plan.

In addition to all the other stuff in a Control Plan (agreed to in advance by each customer), we included an Inspection Process specific to the individual part. At first we did hand measurement and recording - later, automated measuring and direct input of readings to a computer.
Among other things, the Inspection Process included:

  1. an engineering drawing of the part with each dimension to be inspected tagged with a number (in the order in which the dimension was to be inspected.)
  2. A part-specific inspection check list with each dimension numbered in the order it was to be inspected, listing the target dimension with tolerance (column 1), together with the type of instrument (column 2), and the actual dimension measured (column 3), and a 4th column for a redundant check of the same sample by another inspector.
  3. The measured sample was tagged and traveled with the rest of the documentation in the order traveler (the document package which traveled with each step in processing to final shipment.)
We specifically designed each part-specific inspection process for the most efficient use of instruments and operator time. The numbering directed a consistent measuring process on each sample, designed to identify most likely N/C (from the FMEA) first, before wasting time on subsequent measures. Often different parts of the same part had the same dimension, but had been produced in a separate operation and thus had to be measured separately and DISTINCTLY (to identify which process went with which dimension as an aid in problem solving in the event of an N/C.)

Different inspection sheets were created for in-process SPC charting and for both First Article and Final Inspection. Above all, we wanted to eliminate opportunities for error and to make the inspection processes as efficient and capable of being replicated as possible - either by our own in-house folks doing redundant inspections or by customers doing receiving inspection.

The identity of the type of instrument used on each dimension was important. We had a chart to identify each instrument used in an inspection of a sample by serial number, thus the instrument itself could be recalled if there was a suspicion a faulty instrument out of calibration was the cause of any N/C reading.

Anybody and everybody in our organization was empowered to halt manufacture if a N/C were suspected, calling in as much help as necessary to affirm or deny the suspicion before the manufacture was restarted.

Elsewhere in the Cove, over the years, I have described how our operation evolved from traditional manufacture and inspection departments to the point where manufacturing folk performed the routine inspections and quality department folk acted as designers of each part's inspection process in collaboration with each customer, then would act as trainers for the manufacturing folk to perform those inspections, and act as arbiters if a redundant inspection was required.

Everything was slanted to make every part of the manufacturing process flow as smoothly and efficiently as possible, removing bottlenecks and choke points along the way, making liberal use of mistake proofing concepts on every aspect of our operation.

If it's important, we could probably find links to those posts.
