First Article Inspections

This video shows how we created a First Article Inspection process at one of my clients. We designed the process from scratch as, although Oracle says in their Quality User Guide that the module can be used for these inspections, we could never figure out how.

Project Borrow/Payback – Warning at Receipt

All it takes […]
