    failure/faulty samples

    Source : Self practice
    In doing my job, failure/faulty samples give me too little information
    to guess failure-causing points. So I carefully read electrical test results, check out connectivity in the drawing, and think about the possibility of failure at each suspected point.

    When you mention "defective" item produced in mass production, do you normally use "failure sample" or "faulty sample" or both?

    I think defective samples might be better than either one.

    Re: failure/faulty samples

    In addition, "failure points" would be different from "failure-causing points" and that's why I used the latter to be precise. If you feel it's awkward , please let me know.

    Well, I am not a quality control expert, that's for sure, and faulty sample might well be perfectly good (and probably is).
