Classification of defects.
Assembly, incomplete (see 3.2.1).
Dimensions affecting interchangeability (see 3.2.1).
Leakage, excessive (see 3.3.3 and 6.4).
Linkage, improperly adjusted (see 3.4.1).
Identification marking, improper (see 3.5.2 and 3.5.3).
Faulty workmanship affecting performance (see 3.5.4).
Dimensions not affecting interchangeability (see 3.2.1).
Paint, improper application (see 3.2.4).
Faulty workmanship affecting appearance (see 3.5.4).
SIE = Standard Inspection Equipment
Materials and construction.
Conformance to 3.2, 3.2.1, 3.2.3, 3.2.4, 3.4.1, and
3.4.3 shall be determined by inspection of contractor records providing proof or certification that
design, construction, processing, and materials conform to requirements.
shall include drawings, specifications, design data, receiving inspection records, processing and
quality control standards, vendor catalogs and certifications, industry standards, test reports, and
Conformance to 3.2.1, 3.2.4, 3.3.3, 3.4.1, 3.4.4, 3.5.2 through 3.5.4 and
4.4.2 shall be determined by examination for the defects listed in table V.
Examination shall be
visual, tactile, or by measurement with standard inspection equipment (SIE).
The types of verification methods included in this section are
visual, inspection, measurement, sample tests, full-scale demonstration tests, simulation,
modeling, engineering evaluation, component properties analysis, and similarity to previously-
approved or previously-qualified designs.
The manufacturer may propose alternative test methods,
techniques, or equipment, including the application of statistical process control, tool control, or
cost-effective sampling procedures, to verify performance.
See the contract for alternatives that
replace verifications required by this specification.
