This quote is also from my addendum (supplement) to my first report, and refers to a requirement in the Boeing QA Manual:
Retests on NCRs not done: Here is another one:
On NCR (number) revision 3, a T/R sleeve was replaced by a (vendor) mechanic in my area without the usual Removal Records and with the usual bypassing of me, as I would make them do the job right. (My QA Lead) told me he would do the inspection of the rework. When it came to the end of the shift for (him), he left, and the mechanic was still not done with the work.
(Name), the second shift QA lead, came into the area and started complaining to me that the work should have been done on my shift. I told him that (my QA Lead) was doing the inspection of the rework, and that he had left, and I was only staying over after my shift to surf the Boeing intranet (for more information for my report for you). It was 2:50 PM when I left, and I checked the next day and (the second shift QA Lead) had rollerstamped the retest operation on the NCO at 3:10 PM, only twenty minutes after I left! That was one fast retest!
Please ask him how he got the AMM section that was referenced in the NCO retest operation, and check the computer he got it from to see if he is telling the truth. Please use the same method on my QA supervisor Tom Nakamichi when you ask him how he determined no retest was necessary on the 767 T/R.
If he says he reviewed the AMM, check the computer he said he looked at it on and see if he actually surfed to that location on the intranet, and was the one logged on when at that site. You’ll also find that there are no Removal Records, records of process inspections, such as the torques and the safeties C/T (common to) the bolts attaching the actuators to the sleeve, but that is par for the course.
