This standard was revised to emphasize the value of the First Article Inspection (FAI) process to an organization, separate and enhance the planning and evaluation activities, and define Digital Product Definition (DPD) and its relationship to the FAI process. Additional changes to the standard requirements, definitions, and associated notes were incorporated in response to stakeholder needs.
