Critical Product Parameter – Product measurement that materially affects the conformance of the material, component, or product to requirements.
Key characteristic – Feature of a material, part, or process, variation of which will significantly influence a product’s fit, performance, service life, or manufacturability. Key characteristics essential to meeting product goals are identified so that company resources can be focused on them. Key characteristics are often identified by the customer but can also be identified by the company, subcontractors, or suppliers.
Monitoring and Measuring Equipment – Device(s) used to collect data and measure, gauge, test, inspect, or otherwise examine items to determine their compliance with specifications.
Other Product Parameter – Product measurement that does not affect conformance with requirements, but which may relate to the state of the process system.
