Based on specific supplier circumstances, SFI include, but are not limited to Source Inspection, Expediting and Delivery Assurance, Supplier Recovery and Supplier Development tasking performed by Verify qualified resources. The SFI should always include a clearly defined scope of work and exit requirements agreed by both the customer and supplier.
