Completeness of Products


the availability of all component parts, fixtures, and tools required for the functioning of industrial products.

Completeness of complex machines and mechanisms consists in the availability of all the parts, equipment, accessories, and auxiliary devices necessary for the normal operation and appropriate utilization of a machine. For articles consisting of mutually complementary objects (such as a set of furniture or a dinner service), completeness means the availability of sets in the appropriate number with the required form and style. For raw and other materials, completeness means the delivery of products in the strictly specified assortment and with the correct quantitative balance among the various kinds of products.

In the USSR the obligation to make complete product deliveries, in accord with contracts agreed to by enterprises, may be specified in the All-Union State Standards, in engineering specifications, and in price lists; or it may be expressed in agreements between the parties in accord with the Regulations Concerning Deliveries of Products for Production and Technical Usage and with the Regulations Concerning Deliveries of Consumer Goods. These regulations were approved by the Council of Ministers of the USSR on Apr. 9, 1969.
