shear stud manufacturing involves establishing, documenting, and maintaining a factory production control (FPC) system to make sure the products conform to declared performance characteristics before they reach the market. The system is composed of written procedures, regular inspections, tests, evaluations, and the use of the results for controlling raw and other incoming materials, the production process, and the product.
It is important to consider a product control system that conforms to the ISO 9001 requirements. Inspection, test, and evaluation results that require action must be recorded. The records also include the action to be taken in case the control criteria are not met.
