IMO, "family" means parts that share the same the same basic construction and processing.
I worked for a company that Mfg. air,oil, and fuel filters for the OEM market.
While there are 100's of different kinds of each filter, I only needed three FMEA's and three Control Plan's (one for each type) because each type of filter was processed under the same conditions.

A family of parts means that various part numbers have the same type configuration. For example, in my last job we made sensors for automotive application. The sensors look identical except the electrical resistance values. Hope that helps.

Thank you very much for your help!
I understood definition of "family of parts".
BTW, Does anyone know some BIG3's official documents which describes definition of "family of parts" in a glossary or whatelse?
If you have it, please tell me what says it.

Thank you again.
