Telephonics Purchase Orders
Supplier Quality Management has developed a guide to the interpretation and review of Telephonics' Purchase Orders, highlighting areas of importance.
Quality Clause Requirements
Telephonics' Quality requirements are identified on the Purchase Order by Quality Clause number. Quality Clauses are explained on PAP4021.
First Article Inspection
First Article Inspection may be to the requirements of Telephonics' procedure PAP9067, Product Assurance Procedure for Supplier First Article Inspection or to the requirements of AS9201. The requirement will be identified in the Purchase Order by Quality Clause. To assist in the implementation of AS9102 there is a presentation on the requirements.
Requesting Source Inspection
Source Inspection may be required and will be identified by Quality Clause on the Purchase Order. To expedite the process Telephonics has developed a Source Inspection Request form which is to be completed and e-mailed to Supplier Quality Management (the e-mail button on the bottom of the form) with a copy to the Subcontracts Administrator/Buyer identified on the Purchase Order as well as the Supplier Quality Engineer assigned to the Supplier.
Return of No Fault Found Product
Items identified as discrepant during Telephonics test or integration are returned to the supplier for analysis. Sometimes this analysis fails to duplicate the discrepancy or for another reason the item is identified as No Fault Found. Telephonics has generated a letter of explanation to expedite the return of such items by the supplier.
Approved Supplier List
Telephonics requires all suppliers to be on the Telephonics Approved Suppliers List. This requires an evaluation of the supplier's capabilites and Quality System. Telephonics' form, PAF4027-8, Quality System Survey, is utilized to begin the evaluation process.
Telephonics Supplier Manual
Telephonics Supplier Quality Management has developed a 'Supplier Quality Manual' to assist new and old suppliers to understand Telephonics quality requirements. This document is available for download here.
