I work in an automotive plant as Document Control and Lead IATF Auditor(which I am new at) Question: When components come into the is it a requirement to have measurements done on them or can it just be a visual inspection?
During the incoming inspection of the product, the features of the part according to the technical drawing should be checked. These are both size checks and visual checks. For example, controls such as color, burrs, deformation, and rust are visual controls.
If such features are specified in the technical drawing, visual checks should be made during incoming inspection.
