The production part acceptance procedure is a procedure from QS 9000, which was replaced by IATF 16949, in which series parts are sampled to ensure quality. This procedure originates from the automotive industry and has been successfully implemented there for years. The quality is considered to be assured if the parts from the series tools or series processes correspond to the drawings.
In principle, however, there are some essential requirements for the production part acceptance procedure that apply to all companies. These include a representative production run. In the case of the Automotive Industry Action Group (AIAG), this production run must last between one and eight hours and include a specific production quantity of at least 300 consecutive parts.
