Method for collecting First Article Test, Production Lot Testing, and Periodic Sampling Test data for analytical purposes, both positive and negative. Serve as an aid in determining a supplier’s performance and/or responsiveness.
During various stages of the acquisition life cycle, product testing is required for validation and verification of product. A First Article test is the testing and evaluation of the first article for conformance with specified contract requirements before or in the initial state of production. Production Lot Test is a sample from a contractor's production lot that is randomly selected and forwarded to the designated test activity. Periodic Tests are performed to ensure that the required quality, reliability, and safety aspects of the product are maintained throughout production. After the completion of a test, a summary of the test report, to include the contract number, CAGE Code, NSN, disposition and a narrative of the test report is required to be entered and stored in the PDREP-AIS database for future reference.
To retrieve or review Test Reports, the user selects "Test" under the heading "DATA ENTRY" of the PDREP-AIS main menu. From this page, the user can then select the type report, by either "Reporting Activity" or "Serial Number". The report will be generated when the user selects "Search". It is also possible to create an individualized report by creating an "Ad Hoc Report" from the PDREP-AIS main menu and the user can define parameters for the search.
