This quote is also from my addendum (supplement) to my first report:
Please, during your review of our NCRs, look for dispositions that don’t make sense in relation to the description of discrepancy. The inspector, in these cases, should write an "unable to accomplish disposition" revision to the tag and get the disposition revised. Except that rarely happens at PSD. I am one of the few, if only, inspectors that routinely write revisions if the disposition is wrong.Examples:
(NCR (Non-Conformance Record) I.D.), Revision 1, I wrote to correct the wrong disposition on a (A/P Model I.D.) T/R (Thrust Reverser) damaged bracket.
Sometimes our Liaison Engineers are so clueless that writing a revision to get a disposition fixed is a useless endeavor. Check out (NCR I.D.) revision 2, I believe. The discrepancy was on two vendor clamps C/T a vendor tube that had damaged cushions. The revision 0 disposition stated to remove and replace the clamps per AMM (Airplane maintenance manual). This tag epitomizes the danger of accepting vendor rework per the undocumented "tribal knowledge" PSD way, of just making sure the vendor signature is attached to the tag, without any inspection of the rework itself. (To be continued tomorrow..)
