This procedure covers determining the disposition of MRB material and identifying corrective action to prevent future discrepancies.
The Material Review Board (MRB) consists of representatives from the following departments: * Manufacturing Engineering * Materials * Quality * Purchasing
Only the Material Review Board (MRB) can disposition material that fails inspection - that is, only MRB can decide to * scrap material * rework completed assemblies * transfer MRB material to stock * return purchased items to the supplier (including customer-supplied production material) * regrade material
Customer-supplied production material cannot be scrapped until the customer is first given the option to have the material returned.
Regraded material * requiring rework must be reworked and inspected before it can be placed in stock * approved for "use as is" is moved directly to stock
An MRB meeting is held daily to determine the disposition of all discrepant material.
Inspected material that does not conform to all inspection specifications * fails inspection * is transferred to MRB on the day the material fails inspection
Inspection and test status is clearly marked on all material.
An Inspection Tag [../FND/@FOR0711Y] * is required for all material moved to quality inspection or receiving inspection * describes the nature of any material defects or discrepancies * indicates the inspection and test status * indicates the originating discrete job/repetitive schedule, subinventory, or expense number * remains attached to the material for identification purposes
