I'm returning to my quality roots and am a new member here. I have a question regarding semantics. I have a machine shop manager that wants to check his process by a first piece inspection (he called it a 'first article'). Is there a description of 'first article' inspections, 'first piece' inspections, 'in-process' inspections, etc. that I can use to describe the industry 'standard' descriptions of these various terms for my people? It has been so long, I can't find my old notes?! LOL!! Thanks in advance!
