Title: Part Inspection Standard
Revision Date: 05/12/2013
Organization: Supplier Quality
Department Name: Supplier Quality Operations
Primary User(s): Supplier Quality

Approved & Released Document

Purpose of Process

The Part Inspection Standard (Part I/S) is a communication tool between Chrysler Engineering, Supplier Quality, and
Plant Quality and the Supplier in regards to what characteristics Chrysler considers to be "critical" or of high
importance/risk and how the Supplier is expected to and will be inspecting those characteristics during Pilot and
Production phases.

Input / Output of Process


Input:

Vehicle build objectives, preliminary GD&T and specifications
Output: Completed Part I/S

Description / Activity

Part I/S Team members
The core Part I/S Team members include:
Chrysler Plant Quality Center Engineer (QCE)
Chrysler Supplier Quality Engineer (SQE)
Chrysler Engineer
Supplier (Engineer / Program Manager & Quality Manager, at a minimum)

Additional Chrysler personnel may be brought into the team on an "as needed" basis.

Part I/S Process Flow:

1. Prior to the release of a Source Package for a new part, the Chrysler Engineer develops the initial draft of the Part
I/S for inclusion.
If a template of the initial draft already exists for that commodity, the Engineer, SQE, and Plant QCE review
the template and make any necessary changes.
If a template does not exist, then the Engineer leads the creation of a new one, getting the required 8 Stages
of Incoming Material levels from the Plant QCE and the required Sample Sizes & Frequencies from the SQE.
2. The Chrysler team members then review the initial draft, making any changes or additions that are necessary.
3. Once all necessary changes are complete, the initial draft is attached to the Source Package.
4. The Suppliers provide their quotations based on all of the information in the Source Package, including the Part
I/S.
If the Supplier has any concerns, they shall document them and bring them to the Technical Review for
discussion. If a Technical Review is not held, concerns should be provided to the SQE, who will address with
the Chrysler Part I/S team.
5. Following source recommendation, the selected Supplier updates and revises the Part I/S document as the
design is finalized. The Part I/S status and content should be reviewed regularly during Process Planning Review
(PPR) meetings.
6. Prior to 55 WBVP (76 WBVP for Powertrain), the Supplier completes the Part I/S Final document and submits to
the Chrysler SQE.
7. If the SQE considers the Part I/S acceptable, they upload the document to the Part I/S database and add the
Engineer and QCE as approvers. The SQE then submits the Part I/S for final approval (the act of submitting the
document is considered the SQE's approval).
8. The Engineer and QCE review the document.
If they believe it is acceptable, they approve the document.
If there are any issues, they reject the document, filling out the provided checklist to give the reasons.
9. If rejected, the SQE shall work with the Supplier to make the appropriate changes.
10. The Supplier uses the Part I/S when checking parts for all pilot builds and continuing production, as applicable.
Revisions to the Part I/S shall be sent to the Chrysler SQE, who shall upload into the Part I/S database.
All items in the Part I/S shall be included in the Supplier's Control Plan. Note that this does not mean the
Control Plan should only include Part I/S items! The Part I/S includes only critical, end-item product
characteristics, while the Control Plan should also include all process characteristics and additional product
characteristics required to ensure the part meets all specifications.

See the attached Part I/S Process Flow chart and RASIC for additional details.



Part I/S Database


Note: The First Production Shipment Certification (FPSC) plan is also documented on the Part I/S form. See the
"First Production Shipment Certification (FPSC)" process for more information.



FOR PROGRAMS PAST SOURCING AS OF MAY 1st, 2013:

The previous version of the Part I/S process shall be followed for those programs past the sourcing phase as of April 1st,
2013.

1. Identify Parts
All parts that receive a "High" Initial Risk Evaluation (IRE) or Program Risk in the Quality Risk Assessment (QRA)
automatically require a Part I/S (the "Part I/S" flag in the Chrysler Quality Management System (CQMS) will
automatically be set for these parts). In addition, the Plant Quality Center Manager may select additional parts that
are required to have a Part I/S by informing the SQ Program Manager for the program in question. The SQ Program
Manager manually sets the "Part I/S" flag in CQMS for those additional parts. NOTE: if any parts flagged as requiring
a Part I/S in CQMS will NOT require one (as agreed to by the SQ Program Manager and the Plant QCM), the SQ
Program Manager can manually de-select the flag in CQMS.
Identification of parts that require a Part I/S shall be completed no later than 20 weeks prior to the Verification of
Process (VP) Start of Frame (SOF) or Pre-Pilot (for Powertrain components). However, the Chrysler Plant QCE,
SQE, and Engineer may mutually agree to require a Part I/S for a part at any point in the program; this is typically
the result of a serious quality issue at some point.

2. Identify Characteristics
The product characteristics to be included in the Part I/S shall be determined by the Part I/S Team. The Chrysler
Engineer coordinates this effort by providing the Supplier with the applicable requirements for the part (via the design
model). The Plant QCE provides the Supplier with the Vehicle Control Plan (VCP) data and Build Objectives related to
the Supplier's part(s), and both the Supplier and Chrysler SQE (and other Team members, as applicable) give input
based on past quality issues, lessons learned, best practices, etc. The following items shall be considered when
selecting characteristics for the Part I/S:
Key and safety characteristics (<D>, <S>, <E>, Report, Qh, "Stoplight", etc.)
Characteristics included as, or related to, inspection points in the VCP
Characteristics related to previous quality issues, especially yardholds
Customer interface / impact characteristics
Characteristics related to build issues in our plants
Fit & Finish requirements
Any other characteristics deemed critical by a member of the Part I/S Team

Note that characteristics included on the Part I/S should be on the finished part assembly only; process characteristics
are not included. The Plant QCE has the final approval authority on characteristics selected for inclusion.

3. Create Initial Part I/S Draft and submit to Team
The Supplier begins filling out the Part I/S form, in "Draft" status. All characteristics determined critical by the Team
shall be included, with all necessary information. Use the Part I/S checklist, included in the file, as a guide for what
information is necessary for each characteristic and how the form should be completed (see "Part I/S Form Review"
below). The initial draft shall be completed and submitted to the Team no later than 12 weeks prior to the VP SOF or
Pre-Pilot builds.
Note: GD&T sheets may be attached to the Part I/S, if desired (rather than "cut & pasted" into the cover sheet).
3a. Upload initial draft into database: Upon receipt of the initial draft of the Part I/S, the Chrysler SQE uploads it
into the Part I/S Database in Lotus Notes. See the attachment "Part I/S LN DB" for information.

4. Team reviews initial Part I/S Draft
The Chrysler SQE coordinates a review of the initial Part I/S Draft with the entire Team. If possible, this meeting
should take place at the applicable Chrysler assembly plant, with part samples in front of the vehicle, and with all
Team members present. Other methods (such as video conferencing, web conferencing, etc.) may be used if
necessary. When reviewing the Part I/S, the following items shall be considered (all of these are included in the Part
I/S checklist included in the blank Part I/S form):

1. Datums
Location of the datums for the part. Show the feature in question, show appropriate sections of the part or
feature
Applicable datums are shown in the "Remarks/Inspection Method" column for each characteristic; appropriate
sections or sketches are used
Datums are identified as either 2-way (cross-car, fore/aft, or up/down) or 4-way
Identify tolerances for datum features (i.e. Maximum Material Condition, positional tolerances, etc.)
Review drawing/vehicle/mating part to ensure the datums are the same as the vehicle/mating part attachment
points of the part
2. Characteristics / Measurement Points
Location of the measurement point on the part is identified and labeled to correspond with both the
sketch/drawing and "Item #" on the form
Measurement points on the part are to be the same what will be measured when on the vehicle, if applicable
(reference VCP)
All dimensional, functional, and appearance characteristics are included
3. Tolerances / Specifications
Boundary samples (e.g. go/no-go, appearance samples, etc.) are referenced (as applicable)
Tolerances and specifications for a characteristic must not conflict with the VCP, if applicable
If the VCP measures a characteristic referencing two parts (e.g. a gap between two separate parts), the
tolerance on each referenced part does not take up more than half of the CVQS tolerance (i.e. no potential
interference conditions)
4. Gages and Measurement Method
Identify gages or measurement equipment used in checking the part (including visual-only checks)
Gages and measurement equipment must be adequate for measuring the applicable characteristic
5. Sample Sizes and Frequencies
Identify the number of parts being checked for each characteristic
Identify the frequency of checks for each characteristic
All sample sizes and frequencies listed on the Part I/S must match those listed on the Control Plan
6. Sketches and Drawings
Sketches/drawings are clear and easy to understand/read
There is a sketch, drawing, and/or section for each characteristic listed on the Part I/S

The Plant QCE has the final approval on whether the Part I/S is acceptable or not.

5. Revise Part I/S per Team requirements; resubmit for review
If the Part I/S is found to be unacceptable by the Team, the Supplier shall revise the document per the Team's
requirements, and then re-submit for a Team review.

6. Team approves Part I/S Draft
The Chrysler SQE submits the draft document for approval in the Part I/S Database in Lotus Notes. See the
attachment "Part I/S LN DB" for information.

7. Implement Part I/S Draft for VP/Pre-Pilot; submit data to Team
The Supplier builds parts for the VP/Pre-Pilot build and begins using the Part I/S to check them. The Supplier sends
the part data to all team members for their review (as well as inspected part samples, when required by the Plant
QCE) at least two weeks prior to the VP SOF / Pre-Pilot build. The Supplier shall follow their normal problem solving
procedures (including use of the Chrysler electronic Corporate Issue Management System (eCIMS), as applicable) if
parts are found that do not meet specifications. Nonconforming parts found at the Chrysler assembly plant may
require a new revision to the Part I/S (see below).

8. Team reviews Part I/S data and issues for VP build
The Chrysler SQE coordinates a review of the Part I/S data, as well as issues encountered during the VP/Pre-Pilot
build (if any) with the entire Team. If possible, this meeting should take place at the applicable Chrysler assembly
plant, with part samples in front of the vehicle, and with all Team members present. Other methods (such as video
conferencing, web conferencing, email, etc.) may be used if necessary. The Team shall determine if the Part I/S is still
acceptable as-is, or if any modifications are required.

9. Revise Part I/S per Team requirements; resubmit for review
If the Part I/S is found to be unacceptable by the Team, the Supplier shall revise the document per the Team's
requirements, and then re-submit for a Team review. Any revisions to the form shall be documented in the revision
section and initialed by the Team members; the SQE shall upload the revised document to the Part I/S Database, as
applicable.

10. Implement Part I/S Draft for Pre-Series/Pilot; submit data to Team
The Supplier builds parts for the Pre-Series/Pilot build and begins using the Part I/S to check them. The Supplier
sends the part data to all team members for their review (as well as inspected part samples, when required by the
Plant QCE) at least two weeks prior to Pre-Series SOF/Pilot. The Supplier shall follow their normal problem solving
procedures (including use of eCIMS, as applicable) if parts are found that do not meet specifications. Nonconforming
parts found at the Chrysler assembly plant may require a new revision to the Part I/S (see below).

11. Team reviews Part I/S data and issues for Pre-Series/Pilot build
The Chrysler SQE coordinates a review of the Part I/S data, as well as issues encountered during the Pre-Series/Pilot
build (if any) with the entire Team. If possible, this meeting should take place at the applicable Chrysler assembly
plant, with part samples in front of the vehicle, and with all Team members present. Other methods (such as video
conferencing, web conferencing, email, etc.) may be used if necessary. The Team shall determine if the Part I/S is still
acceptable as-is, or if any modifications are required.

12. Revise Part I/S per Team requirements; resubmit for review
If the Part I/S is found to be unacceptable by the Team, the Supplier shall revise the document per the Team's
requirements, and then re-submit for a Team review.

13. Part I/S Final Approval
The SQE uploads the revised document into the Part I/S Database in Lotus Notes and submits for approval. See the
attachment "Part I/S LN DB" below for information.

14. Implement Part I/S Final for Job 1/SOP and volume production; retain data for review upon request
The Supplier begins using the Part I/S to check parts for Job 1/Start of Production (SOP) and going forward into
volume production. All data is retained by the Supplier for review upon request by any Chrysler Team member (or
other personnel, as applicable).

16. Revise Part I/S as needed; resubmit for review
The Part I/S is treated as any other quality document, and can be updated and revised when necessary. Any of the
following situations may require a revision of the Part I/S:
Process change or internal resource (initiated by the Supplier via the Forever Requirements system)
Quality issue (at the Chrysler assembly plant, Supplier facility, warranty, etc.)
Part design change (initiated by the Chrysler Engineer via the WebCN system)
Other situation (as applicable)
The Supplier makes any necessary updates or revisions to the form, documents them in the "Revision/Description"
section of the form, and coordinates obtaining each Team member's initials. The Supplier keeps the original, and
forwards an electronic (scanned) copy to all other Team members.
Upon receipt of any initialed revision of the Part I/S, the Chrysler SQE uploads it into the Part I/S Database in Lotus
Notes. They will need to create a new document (and have the old revision deleted). See the attachment "Part I/S LN
DB" for information.
