This quote is also from my addendum (supplement) to my first report (continued from previous day's quote):
During the time I was inspecting the tube, (Customer Coordinator Inspector's name) came into the area and he, (the tube shop mechanic), and I started talking about the new "tube won’t fit" process. I told (the Customer Coordinator inspector) I thought they shouldn’t even have built the tube until the tag was written. (The Customer Coordinator inspector) argued that they could build whatever they wanted without paperwork, but they couldn’t install it without authorizing paperwork. Then I tried to pry (the tube shop mechanic) for information about how they did the new process. I asked him if they were still "tweaking" production tubes and putting them into the struts with this new process. He said they had stopped doing that about three months ago, and were making the NCR (Non-Conformance Record) tubes "from scratch" themselves now. Of course, I could probably trust him about as far as I could throw him on that, as my statement on the above PAR (Production Action Request) attests.
