My MIP services

Mandatory inspection point

MIP is a term widely used in the space industry to describe mandatory points during the production of an item at which an inspection must be carried out. These points are agreed between the customer and the supplier of the item before production commences. Responsibility for MIPs may be delegated by the customer to the supplier, or they may be performed by a customer representative as a source inspection.

MIPs may be performed on detail parts, components, sub-assemblies and final assemblies, at any point in the production process up to and including immediately prior to shipping to the customer.

What I will do for you

I will perform MIP inspection in accordance with any specific instructions you provide, but typically I will verify integrity and conformance of the product to specified requirements and prepare a report for you as described on my source inspection services page.
