Techniques for Suspect/Counterfeit EEE Parts Detection by X-ray Fluorescence Test Methods
- Aerospace Standard
For those tasked with detecting counterfeit electrical, electronic, and electromechanical (EEE) Parts, the SAE Counterfeit Defect Coverage Tool, in conjunction with SAE AS6171, is a dynamic, web-based application for developing a counterfeit detection test sequence and its associated counterfeit defect coverage while considering the resources necessary to implement those tests.

To develop an inspection/test matrix plan for different classes of Electrical, Electronic, and Electromechanical (EEE) commodities to detect suspect and confirmed counterfeit components. The matrix will include recommended visual, physical, electrical, and material testing based on different commodities and associated tier level of determined risk. The plan will include a process for evaluating risk. The plan will provide guidance on the recommended tier level of testing that should be performed based on risk of the supplier, the item, application, and other risk factors. It will also include recommended sampling plans for the tests based on tier level of accepted risk, level of confidence required, and acceptable reject criteria.
