Equipment Modification Procedure

. Response to Engineering Deficiencies

. The customer shall issue written engineering notification when the supplied
equipment :
- Does not satisfy the purposes for which it was intended.
- Does not fulfill the requirements under which it was manufactured or
inspected.
- Does not operate properly.
- Requires excessive field maintenance
Or for
- Drafting and typographical discrepancies in current drawings, descriptions and
operational handbooks.
- Irregularities or errors on customer orders.

. The supplier shall acknowledge receipt of the notification within a period of
days and shall establish an objective for the investigation and resolution of the
problem with a written report to the customer within an additional days.


. Conditions of Supplier Changes and Modifications

. Any changes to the equipment furnished in accordance with this specification that
would influence its operations, its life, or its interchangeability with equipment
previously supplied in accordance with this specification requires prior written
notification to the customer. In order for the customer to review such change,
App.

thirty () days notice shall be required except for those cases where an extremely
unsatisfactory condition requires immediate action on the part of the supplier.

. Any changes in equipment shall be classified into one of the following five
classes:

Class A: Changes which are needed to correct inoperative electrical or mechanical
conditions, extremely unsatisfactory maintenance or operating conditions, safety
hazards, or system incompatibility which is judged severe enough to have to be
made to all units in process, stock, or installed.

Class B: Same as Class A except that the inoperative or extremely unsatisfactory
conditions are caused by circuit combinations or options which exist only on some
of the equipments.

Class C: Same as Class A except that the conditions may be allowed to exist on a
temporary basis. In some cases, equipment may be shipped without incorporating
that change at the time.

Class D: Changes which are vitally important to justify their application to
equipment being manufactured (as soon as reasonably possible) and which are
recommended for application to existing installations in the field. Examples of this
class of change include:
a) Providing new features that directly affect subscriber service.
b) Providing design improvements which result in better service
capabilities, longer life or improved performance margins.
c) Providing changes in design which result in important cost saving to
the customer.

Class E: Other changes not sufficiently important to justify application to
production units within any specified time period and not sufficiently important to
recommend for application to existing installations in the field.



. The supplier shall, at the time of notification, designate the class of the proposed
change in accordance with the above description. For Class A, B and C changes,
the supplier shall update, at his own cost, all warranted equipment furnished in
accordance with this specification. For Class D changes, the supplier shall first
notify the customer of the exact nature of the change. Details on the proposed
implementation procedure, including cost saving to the customer, if any, for
equipment which is being or will be supplied, shall be discussed with the
customer. The customer shall at his option determine if such changes shall be
incorporated in equipment previously shipped. Should such changes be deemed
necessary, the supplier shall make arrangements for the necessary equipment
modification at prices and schedules to be mutually agreed upon prior to
implementation. For Class E changes, documentation shall be provided as
necessary.
. Changes or modifications occurring during the production of the equipment
intended for the customer may be made without the approval of the customer. The
customer shall receive prior written notification on proposed changes as soon as
possible.


. Design changes and modification notices

Notifications to the customer of equipment design changes and modifications shall
include the following information:
- Supplier
- Contract
- Product
- Change classification (A,B,C,D,E)
- Material affected
- Reason for change
- Description of change
- Estimated cost to implement
- Marking and method of identifying changed units

- Documentation affected (including edition and date of all documentation and
drawings requiring changes)
- Number of affected units in service
- Date in which changes will be implemented
- Changes in performance characteristics (if any)

The supplier shall maintain a complete history of all shipments of racks, shelves, and
circuit modules of facilitate changes and modifications and maintain records of
documentation distribution of facilitate updating. Records shall include an identification
or code which can be cross-referenced to the schematic drawings, drawing edition, and
month of manufacture. Records shall be made accessible to the customer or his
representative.
