  • 4.0              Serialization of Product Defined.

    ·        Product serialization requirements are defined by the specific work order for the given product being produced. 


    5.0              Lot Definition.

    1)      Each commercial product lot will be defined per regulations, as follows: 

    (1)    No more than 200 continuous products (lot acceptance destructive products excluded) produced on one setup (defined as a single machine/program setup) for carbon.

    (a)   The glass over-wrap shall be setup on the same machine as the carbon over-wrap or on a second machine.

    (b)   Different liner manufacturers if used in a single production lot would necessitate a cycle/burst test for each manufacturer.  If more than one liner lot from the same manufacturer is used, it would necessitate a cycle/burst test for each unless the liner lot was previously tested.

    (c)    In no cases should a lot of liners be untested. This begins effective 2/23/06 .  If a liner lot is not tested, we will follow our NCMR procedure.
