From Elsmar Cove Quality Assurance and Business Standards Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

In practice, a First Article is usually not the very first piece, but is the first piece produced once the machinery is optimized before actual production is authorized.

Often called First Off, First Piece, First Piece Off, as well as other names.

The term 'First Article' comes from US government Federal Acquisition Regulations jargon.
