  • production qualification test

    A technical test completed prior to the Full-Rate Production (FRP) decision to ensure the effectiveness of the manufacturing process, equipment, and procedures. This testing also provides data for the independent evaluation required for materiel release so the evaluator can address the materiel's adequacy with respect to the stated requirements. These tests are conducted on a number of random samples from the first production lot, and are repeated if the process or design is changed significantly and when a second or alternative source is brought online.
