First article inspections (FAI) are now expected in most fields of manufacturing, in particular aerospace, automotive, and medical manufacturing.
Technical inspection usualy consists of measuring the properties and geometry of sample item to see if it meets specifications.
Despite the name, the inspected article is not always or necessarily the 'first' in any sense. Mostly we speak about dimensional inspection.
Purpose to require First Article Inspections:
• To verify the accuracy of drawings and ensure that they reflect any changes made to parts design during the prototype design.
• To verify the production process in every parameter, rather than just concentrating on “critical” dimensions.
• To verify all tooling used to produce a part, to ensure that it is capable of producing parts to specifications.
• To verify the ability of the manufacturer to meet the needs of production.
We are capable to work FAIR with you. FAIR = First Article Inspection Report

As you most probably know, Sorting is any process of arranging items according to a certain sequence or in different sets, and therefore, it has two common, yet distinct meanings:
1. ordering: arranging items of the same kind, class or nature, in some ordered sequence
2. Categorizing: grouping and labeling items with similar properties together (by sorts)
