Section 10.4.0. Manufacturing Process

Each manufacturing step of the fracture critical parts must be monitored and controlled.  Procedures must be developed which provide strict accountability and sign-off from step to step but which also do not unduly hinder the normal flow of manufacturing processes.  Two major items are involved at this point: (1) establishing the control of manufacturing quality, and (2) developing the methods for critical parts accountability.
