A brief summary of how parts go from being in your Fictiv account to being in your hands

At Fictiv, we're proud of the speed with which we can effectively deliver quality controlled parts. When you place an order, the Fictiv engine kicks into high gear.

As soon as our production team receives an order, they evaluate the process, material, lead time, and geometry of the parts, and then utilize our smart sourcing algorithms to divide up and assign each part to the manufacturing partners who are most suited for the job. Every Fictiv manufacturing partner is under a strict Non-Disclosure Agreement, so you can rest assured that your intellectual property will be safe within our network.

Once the partner accepts the job and manufactures the parts, the parts will undergo inspection. The minimum quality control adheres to the ISO 2768 medium standard, but our partners also check for compliance with any callouts stated in drawings or notes for the order. Please note that unless Advanced Inspection is added during part configuration, the parts will be inspected using hand metrology tools only. Therefore, only dimensions that can be accurately measured with hand metrology tools will be inspected.

For critical dimensions or callouts, you may use Fictiv's 2D annotation tool to highlight these requirements.

If the parts pass inspection, our partner will upload detailed photos to the back end of the Fictiv Platform, and our own Quality Control experts will remotely review the parts for any cosmetic defects or dimensional non-conformances that our manufacturing partner might have missed. 

Once the parts pass both inspections, they're packed up and ready to be sent out to you!
