This form is used to identify and provide traceability to the product.
FAIR #: Automatically generated report number corresponding with the FAI.

Copy FAIR: Create a copy or follow-up to the FAIR. This generates a new First Article Inspection Report containing some or all of the data on the original FAIR.

Deltas: Show a list of the Parent or Delta FAIRs related to the current FAIR.
Reset: Reopen the FAIR, or send a request to an administrator or customer to reopen the FAIR. This option is only available after a FAIR has been submitted. Upon being reset, the FAIR's checklist (if present) is unsigned, and the following fields are cleared:
- Signature and Date (Forms 1, 2, and 3)
- Reviewed by and Date
- Customer Approval and Date
Save: Save changes made to the FAIR. Unavailable after Form 1 has been signed.
Sign: Lock FAIR, sign Field 19, and complete Field 20. If Form 2 and/or 3 have not yet been signed, then these forms will also be signed. If the form has been signed but the FAIR has not yet been submitted, then an Unlock button will appear in its place.
Submit: Close and submit FAIR, sign Field 21, and complete Field 22.
Return to List: Return to your company's list of internal or supplier FAIRs. Filters applied to the list before opening a FAIR are retained and will be applied again upon clicking this button.
1. Part Number (R)

If your selected customer has enabled the “Part-Level Security” preference, then the Part Number that you enter must match a part record already set up by that customer. If no such record exists, then the Customer must create it before you can proceed.
If your company or the selected customer has enabled the "Part-Level Security" preference, then the Part Number that you enter must currently be active. If the part record has been removed (through the "Part & Feature Setup" page on the Quality Management menu), then you will receive an error upon attempting to create the FAIR. If the part was removed in error, then you may need to contact the customer for assistance with activating it again.
