A First Article Inspection (FAI) is an official authentication method for a manufacturing process. At IIA, our FAI reports utilize the dimensional properties of a production part in comparison to design specifications. Items that can have FAI’s on them are varied and inspections may include distances between edges, positions of holes, diameters and shapes of holes, weight, density, stiffness, color or surface finish.
