2.0   REVIEW OF DELEGATION OVERSIGHT – CLOSED

      Data was reviewed for Task Group concurrence with Audit Report Reviewer decisions. Jim Lewis,
      Bob Lizewski and Jerry Polidor, delegated Audit Report Reviewers, met the criteria of over 10%
      audits reviewed and greater than 90% concurrence. Delegation is maintained.

4.0   MEMBERSHIP STATUS REVIEW – CLOSED

      The voting records and meeting attendance for Task Group Voting Members, Subscriber and
      Supplier, were reviewed for compliance to the requirements for maintaining membership. The
      requirements state that to maintain membership, a member must not be absent without approved
      alternate representation from three consecutive regular Nadcap Task Group meetings and the
      member, or approved alternate representation, shall not miss a vote on more than 2 consecutive
      letter ballots. The Task Group Chair is allowed to waive these requirements if other circumstances
      warrant retention.

      All Voting Members met the requirements for meeting attendance. Two Subscriber Voting
      Members had not voted on three or more of the last letter ballots for Coatings. These members
      have been active participants in the Task Group for many years. The Task Group Chair approved
      all members to retain their membership status.
                                                     2
                                                                                               COATINGS
                                                                                           FEBRUARY 2011

        There were no new members.

5.0     SATELLITE AUDIT PROCESS – CLOSED

        The Task Group approved adding criteria to s-frm-16 for satellite audits. The approved criteria are
        'satellite audits will be graded using the criteria for main audits and subtracting 1 day'.

6.0     NUCAP DEVIATION REVIEW – CLOSED

        There were no NUCAP deviations to review.

7.0     TASK GROUP RESOLUTION ISSUES – CLOSED

        Audit 135628 included an NCR where the supplier did not have a record of round robin results. The
        internal testing was completed and samples were sent to an external source for review. The results
        were not received at the time of the audit.

        The Staff Engineer resolved all items during audit review with the exception that results of the
        external overview were still not received by the supplier.

        The Task Group approved closing the NCR and sending the audit for ballot with the condition that
        results will be submitted when received.

8.0     NEW BUSINESS – CLOSED

8.1     Job Audit Tracker

        Bob Lizewski reviewed a draft of the job tracker. The Task Group consensus was that this is a
        good tool. Going forward it was recommended to add implementation of the job tracker to the RAIL.
        Implementation should address the following items: pilot the tracker on 1 or 2 audits; where in the
        checklist the job tracker should be attached; and modifying NTGOP-001 Appendix 9.

ACTION ITEM: Bob Lizewski will pilot the job tracker by working with 2 or 3 auditors. The job tracker will be
explained and given to select auditors to use on an audit in order to provide feedback (DUE DATE: 10-Jun-
11)

ACTION ITEM: Bob Lizewski will make a recommendation as to where to attach the job tracker in the
checklist. (DUE DATE: 20-May-11)

ACTION ITEM: Bob Lizewski will draft verbiage explaining the job tracker for incorporation into NTGOP-
001 Appendix 9. (DUE DATE: 20-May-11)

8.2     Auditor Chat Room

        Bob Lizewski reviewed the concept of developing an auditor chat room. The chat room provides an
        opportunity to resolve auditor questions with access restricted to auditors, Subscribers and PRI
        staff. The Task Group consensus was it is a good concept if the auditors want it. Prior to going
        forward the auditors should be asked whether they see value in the concept. In addition more
        information is required to discern how the chat room works; for example, how the forum is hosted,
        what are the security risks, what is the response frequency, etc.

ACTION ITEM: Bob Lizewski to obtain detailed information as to the operation of the chat room from Heat
Treat Task Group. (DUE DATE: 30-Apr-11)

ACTION ITEM: Bob Lizewski will add an agenda item to the October 2011 auditor conference to discuss
the concept of the auditor chat room and ascertain whether the auditors want to proceed with the concept.
(DUE DATE: 08-Aug-11)

                                                      3
                                                                                              COATINGS
                                                                                          FEBRUARY 2011

8.3    New Agenda Format

       Bob Lizewski presented the new agenda format for the June 2011 meeting and confirmed the
       October meeting will revert back to the same format used for the February 2011 meeting with the
       exception that the Task Group Chair and Staff Engineer Round Table will be conducted during
       lunch on Tuesday. While the new meeting format provides an opportunity to move the Coatings
       meeting to Tuesday thru Friday, the Task Group decided to keep the same Monday through
       Thursday format to minimize travel for suppliers and to provide for a closed meeting prior to the
       open meeting.

8.4    First Pass Yield

       Bob Lizewski reviewed the proposed first pass yield metric. The Task Group consensus is tracking
       this metric brings no value to the program and could potentially lead to unintended negative
       outcomes. The Task Group opinion was to be presented in Planning and Ops subteam meeting.

8.5    Succession Planning

       Jack Saunders announced that he will transition the responsibilities of the Task Group Chair to
       current Vice Chair Tim Pruitt during the June 2011 meeting. The current succession plan includes
       Jon Higgins as Vice Chair. Jon will not be able to fulfill this duty, and a new Vice Chair must be
       appointed. Jack Saunders requested that anyone interested in becoming the next Task Group Vice
       Chair contact him, Jim Lewis, or Bob Lizewski.

8.6    Evaluation of Failure Criteria

       Bob Lizewski reviewed NCR data for initial and reaccreditation audits for 2010 and 2009 to
       establish criteria for the Mode B failure criteria in NOP-011 Appendix A. See Agenda Item 17.0 for
       additional information.

9.0    NMC METRICS – OPEN

       The NMC metrics were presented by Bob Lizewski and reviewed by the Task Group. Metrics
       exhibiting an acceptable “green” stoplight condition included Audit Capacity, Certifications Issued
       on Time, Supplier Cycle Time. Staff Cycle Time and Task Group Cycle Time for Reaccreditation
       Audits displayed a yellow condition. Red condition exists for % Suppliers on Merit.

       The suppliers on merit metric is now at 63% of those eligible as compared with a goal of 80%; this
       is the highest it has ever been for this Task Group since it has been tracked. The Task Group has
       initiated several actions to improve this.

10.0   AUDITOR EVALUATION REPORT OUT – OPEN

       Bob Lizewski reported out on the outcome of the auditor review conducted during the closed
       Agenda Item 3.0. There are no significant issues or negative trends; overall, feedback has been
       positive. No actions are required at this time.

11.0   PRIME JOB AUDIT GUIDELINE UPDATE – OPEN

       No further Job Audit Guidelines have been submitted for review. Those currently available for
       Rolls-Royce plc will need to be pulled out of Public Documents as the checklists are revised.

ACTION ITEM: Bob Lizewski will remove the outdated Rolls-Royce plc job audit guideline from Public
Documents. (DUE DATE: 30-Apr-11)

                                                                                            FEBRUARY 2011
12.0   FUTURE TASK GROUP INITIATIVES REVIEW – OPEN

       The Task Group reviewed the list of proposed initiatives to be addressed in the future. Anyone can
       send suggestions for consideration to the Chair or Staff Engineer.

13.0   REVIEW OF COATINGS PURCHASE ORDER FLOWDOWN TEMPLATE – OPEN

       The Coatings Supplier Purchase Order Flowdown Template was reviewed; no changes were made
       to the document. It was discussed that a note should be added to the next revision of AC7109 to
       inform suppliers of tools available on eAuditNet and PRI websites to assist them in completing the
       audit. Other ideas were also discussed regarding Supplier awareness of audit tools including
       additional text to auto generated emails and alerts when Coatings Public Documents are updated.

ACTION ITEM: Bob Lizewski will add the proposed revision (adding a note to the beginning of the AC7109
checklist detailing tools available to the Supplier) to the AC7109 revision list. (DUE DATE: 30-Apr-11)

ACTION ITEM: Bob Lizewski will liaise with the Nadcap sub team currently working on improving supplier
awareness and report back to the Task Group in June. (DUE DATE: 17-Jun-11)

14.0   SUPPLIER SUPPORT COMMITTEE REPORT – OPEN

       Dale Harmon (Cincinnati Thermal Spray), Coatings representative to the Supplier Support
       Committee (SSC), presented an overview of the SSC and items of interest from the SSC meeting
       held the previous afternoon. For complete details, see published minutes of the SSC posted on
       www.pri-network.org.

15.0   NMC MEETING REPORT – OPEN

       Chair Jack Saunders updated the Task Group on items of interest from the Nadcap Management
       Council (NMC) meeting earlier in the day. For complete details, see published minutes of the NMC
       posted on www.pri-network.org.

16.0   DISCUSSION OF PLANNING AND OPS MEETING OUTPUT – OPEN

       Chair Jack Saunders and Staff Engineer Jim Lewis briefed the Task Group on items of interest
       from the Planning and Ops meeting of the previous day. For complete details, see published
       minutes of the NMC posted on www.pri-network.org.

17.0   EVALUATION OF FAILURE CRITERIA – OPEN

       Bob Lizewski led a review of the Coatings Task Group audit failure criteria; the criteria are to be
       reviewed annually for adjustment based on data from the previous year. It was decided to use data
       from the past two years of audits in order to get a more realistic view due to the statistical
       insignificance of the one year 2010 data. The failure criteria for 2011 will be, for initial audits, 1.3
       major and 6.3 total findings average per audit day. For reaccreditation audits the criteria are 1.2
       major and 3.2 total findings average per audit day. The ceiling for each day will be rounded up to
       the next whole number.

18.0   MICROANALYSIS CHECKLIST TEAM PROPOSAL – OPEN

       There has been no progress reported from the team assigned to create these requirements. The
       Task Group looked at the three documents from which the requirements may come and asked the
       team to have one document to review at the next meeting.

       Jon Higgins (Rolls-Royce plc) was added to the team, while Tetyana Shmyreva was removed.

                                                                                               COATINGS
                                                                                           FEBRUARY 2011
